This one-time grant provides a minimum of $10,000 and up to $20,000 to small business owners required to close or restrict services under the provincewide shutdown. Each small business will be able to use the support in whatever way makes the most sense for their individual business. Further details, including how to apply, will be announced in January 2021.
