Supports like rental subsidies, protections from evictions, freezes on rental increases, federal financial supports, provincial supports and expanded access to employment insurance through the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB). All together, these will form the safety net that is so critical in the coming weeks and months to ease the burden of global pandemic.
