Regional Relief and Recovery Fund: COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has already had significant impacts on businesses, workers and communities across the country.
The Government of Canada recognizes this and will be there to support you during and after the crisis. That's why they have created the Regional Relief and Recovery Fund (RRRF).
Nearly $1B in support to affected businesses and communities
The Fund will help to:
- mitigate the financial pressure experienced by businesses and organizations to allow them to continue their operations, including paying their employees;
- support projects by businesses, organizations and communities to prepare now for a successful recovery.
- provides $213 million in support to southern Ontario SMEs that do not qualify for, or have been declined for, current Government of Canada COVID-19 relief measures.
This initiative is implemented by the six regional development agencies, which are familiar with their regions' economic realities and are often the first point of contact for people at the local level.
*Please Note there are limited funds in this program, it is recommended to apply as soon as possible.
