Montreal businesses worried about tax deadline approaching

The City of Montreal says hundreds of merchants have taken advantage of the financial aid programs it has put in place.
But they’re calling on more businesses to apply for aid.
The city has a $3 million relief fund but has only given out $1 million.
“That means we still have $2 million available in grants for local merchants, so if you need help please contact PME Montreal, ” said Luc Rabouin, member of Montreal’s Executive Committee responsible for economic development.
The programs aim to support businesses through the pandemic.
The owner of chocolate factory Etat de Choc Maud Gaudreau says the $10,000 grant she obtained from the city has helped her business stay afloat this summer.
It allowed her to update her website and keep her employees.
But she says she still has to pay her tax bill due in September and she worries she’ll have to use part of that grant to do so.
