A group representing Canada ‘s small business sector has launched a petition pressing the federal government to halt the phasing out of financial support programs.
The (CFIB) says small business owners are keen to replace subsidies with sales but only 35 per cent are back to normal levels of sales and many don’t see that happening until next year.
In addition to closing the Canada Emergency Business Account (CEBA) loan program last month, Ottawa has started to phase out the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) and Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy (CERS).
