The Federal Government announced, earlier this morning, that they would be extending CEWS (Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy) until the end of the year. Businesses can apply for CEWS on the federal governments website.

The Provincial Government also announced, earlier this afternoon, that 20 million more free masks would be available at A&W, McDonalds Canada, and Tim Hortons. Wearing a non-medical mask when it's difficult to maintain physical distancing of two metres is one way we can continue to limit the spread of COVID-19 as we relaunch our province. This initiative is a key part of Alberta’s Relaunch Strategy to safely reopen our economy while protecting Albertans from COVID-19.
