We are seeing some positive signs in Ontario in the fight against the spread of COVID-19, with the government beginning to ease emergency restrictions. However, this process will take some time, and families will need continued access to financial and social supports to get through this crisis.
To assist our members in navigating some of the supports offered, we have produced the attached FAQ below.
Please note that there are regular announcements made by both levels of government. PSAC Ontario has developed this FAQ reference document to assist our members in navigating some of the supports offered. Members should visit the government sites for the full listings:
- Government of Canada: www.canada.ca/en/department-finance/economic-response-plan.html
- Ontario Government: www.ontario.ca/page/covid-19-support-people
The labour movement will continue to lobby the federal and provincial governments to put people first in battling this pandemic. Should you have questions, please contact your closest PSAC Regional office for assistance (http://ontario.psac.com/contact-us).
