Many Canadians are struggling to satisfy their financial obligations during these uncertain times. Others could also be feeling the calm before the storm because they need been ready to tap into the temporary relief provided by governments and financial institutions, such as:
CERB benefits (Approximately $70 billion has been paid to Canadians as of Aug. 16, 2020).
Flexible loan payment options or interest relief for debtors facing financial difficulties.
Canada Revenue Agency extending the 2019 tax payment deadline to Sept. 30, 2020.
Federal government’s next phase of COVID-19 income support for people .
These temporary relief measures are meant to assist Canadians support their families and meet their obligations during very uncertain times. they’re not permanent solutions, nor do they remove the strain of the financial burden that existed before the COVID-19 pandemic.
Start thinking long-term
