Today, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland announced that the federal government has reached a $19 billion Safe Restart Agreement with Provinces and Territories to help meet the funding shortfall created by the COVID-19 Pandemic. The agreement will cover the next 6-8 months and the Prime Minister acknowledged that more money may be required in the future.

  • Healthcare, including mental health, addictions, and homelessness
  • Purchasing PPE
  • Childcare
  • Support for seniors, including long-term care, home care and palliative care
