We are all adapting to big new changes in our daily lives to keep each other safe from COVID-19, and so many Canadian families, workers, and businesses face real concerns about making ends meet. That’s why Justin Trudeau and the Liberal government are taking strong action to ensure that you and your loved ones are supported through this difficult time.

The health, safety, and well-being of Canadians is always our top priority. I’m deeply grateful for the sacrifices and hard work that so many of you are taking on to keep your families, neighbours, and communities safe.
It will take all of us doing our part to stop the spread of COVID-19 and support those in need, and I know that’s exactly how we will get through this – together.
