Ontario Continues to Support Employers and Workers during COVID-19

The Ontario government continues to work with its federal and municipal partners to support employers and workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Ontario Small Business Support Grant

The government’s new Ontario Small Business Support Grant will provide a minimum of $10,000 and up to $20,000 to help eligible small business owners during this challenging period.

Small businesses required to close or significantly restrict services will be able to apply for this one-time grant. Each eligible small business will be able to use the support in whatever way makes the most sense for their individual business. For example, some businesses will need support paying employee wages or rent, while others will need assistance maintaining their inventory.
