联邦政府正在采取有针对性的行动,以支持因COVID-19疫情大流行而继续面临不确定性和经济挑战的加拿大人和加拿大工商业、非营利组织和慈善机构。

11月19日,C-9号法案《所得税法修订案(加拿大紧急租金补贴和加拿大紧急工资补贴)》获得了皇室御准(Royal Assent),政府将实施新的、有针对性的支持措施,以帮助遭受重创的企业。这些措施将帮助企业度过第二波病毒,让他们得以保护就业,继续为社区服务并为强劲的经济复苏做好准备。

C-9法案所提出的一些措施包括:

新的”加拿大紧急租金补贴”(Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy, CERS),将为租户和地产业主提供直接并易于申领的租金和房贷利息补助,期限直到2021年六月,适用于受COVID-19疫情影响的符合条件的组织。新的租金补贴将为收入下降的企业、慈善机构和非营利组织提供支持,为他们直到2020年12月19日为止的符合资格支出提供最高65%的补贴。申领补贴可追溯至2020年9月27日。

新的“封门扶持”( Lockdown Support),将通过”加拿大紧急租金补贴(CERS)”为符合资格条件的组织提供25%的额外费用补助,条件是在加拿大、各省及地区法律授权下的公共卫生指令之下(包括市政当局或区域卫生当局根据其中一项法律做出的指令),这些组织面临封门措施,而必须关门停业或营业活动受到严重限制。与上述措施加在起来,这意味着受到疫情重创的企业可能会获得高达90%的租金支持。

将加拿大紧急工资补贴(Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy, CEWS)的适用期延长至2021年6月,这一措施将继续帮助雇主保留员工在工资单上并重新聘回员工,保护就业。工资补贴将保持当前的补贴率直到2020年12月19日,提供最高为工资额度65%的补助。

C-9法案所实施的计划将有助于确保企业、非营利组织和慈善机构度过这场危机、保持有偿付能力、并将员工保留在工资单上。

联邦政府还重申其打算引入立法,正式将应付租金(rent payable)作为一种符合资格的费用,用于从2020年9月27日起加拿大紧急租金补贴CERS的计算。一旦申请门户网站启动,符合资格条件的组织将可以在此基础上申领房租补贴。

引述

副总理兼财政部长方惠兰(Chrystia Freeland):

“我要衷心感谢所有各政党的国会议员和参议员,感谢你们支持并及时通过C-9法案,以确保员工和雇主们获得他们所需要的帮助,度过严冬季节和第二波COVID -19疫情。加拿大人知道,在危机时期,我们都必须携手努力。我们联邦政府将继续采取行动,保护就业、支持企业并守护加拿大人的安全和健康。”

小企业、出口促进和国际贸易部长伍凤仪(Mary Ng):

“在全国各地,小型企业是我们社区的核心,他们在整个COVID-19危机中表现出了不可思议的弹性韧力。今天,随着C-9法案获得皇室御准,我们将继续与遭受重创的企业和员工们并肩同在,为他们提供至关重要的支持,一直到2021年6月。我们政府了解到,现在帮助企业主和员工们,将确保未来我们从当前的艰难状况中以更强的姿态复苏。”

事实简要

目前已有超过380万加拿大人通过加拿大紧急工资补贴CEWS获得了就业支持,截至2020年11月8日,已发放补贴480亿加元。

小中型企业在很多行业中占有很大比例,诸如食品服务(比如餐馆)、酒店服务业、旅游和运输等行业等,而这些行业持续受到病毒以及相关的管控措施的严重影响。

截至2020年11月12日,加拿大政府通过加拿大紧急商业租金援助(CECRA)为小型企业提供了超过20亿加元的租金支持。租金援助已经帮助了139,000多名小企业租户,支持加拿大的125万个就业岗位。

新的租金补贴CERS将接替先前的租金计划,为受COVID-19疫情冲击的合资格组织提供直接、有针对性的、且易于申领的租金支持,而无需经过与房东一起申请。此举将为符合条件的固定资产支出提供补贴,包括租金和商业房贷利息。新宣布的计划补助条件将适用至2020年12月19日,而2021年的未来参数将根据需要进行调整并确定目标。

为了正式确定自2020年9月27日起的应付租金可以作为用于加拿大紧急租金补贴的合格支出费用,政府将尽快在下议院引入立法。

News release
New, targeted support to help businesses through pandemic receives Royal Assent
From: Department of Finance Canada
November 19, 2020 – Ottawa, Ontario – Department of Finance Canada

The government is taking targeted action to support Canadians and Canadian businesses, non-profits and charities that continue to face uncertainty and economic challenges because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Today, Bill C-9, An Act to Amend the Income Tax Act (Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy and Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy) received Royal Assent, implementing new, targeted support to help hard-hit businesses. These measures will help businesses get through the second wave of the virus so they can protect jobs, continue to serve their communities, and be positioned for a strong recovery.

The measures adopted as part of Bill C-9 are:

The new Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy, which will provide direct and easy-to-access rent and mortgage interest support to tenants and property owners until June 2021 for qualifying organizations affected by COVID-19. The new rent subsidy will support businesses, charities, and non-profits that have suffered a revenue drop by providing support up to a maximum of 65 per cent of eligible expenses until December 19, 2020. Claims can be made retroactively to September 27, 2020.

The new Lockdown Support, which will provide an additional 25 per cent through the Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy for qualifying organizations that are subject to a lockdown and must shut their doors or significantly restrict their activities under a public health order issued under the laws of Canada, a province or territory (including orders made by a municipality or regional health authority under one of those laws). Combined, this will mean that hard-hit businesses subject to a lockdown could receive rent support of up to 90 per cent.

The extension of the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy until June 2021, which will continue to protect jobs by helping employers keep employees on the payroll and re-hire workers. The wage subsidy will remain at the current rate of up to 65 per cent of eligible wages until December 19, 2020.

The programs implemented in Bill C-9 will help to ensure that businesses, non-profits and charities get through this crisis, stay solvent, and keep workers on the payroll.

The government also reaffirms its intention to introduce legislation to formalize rent payable as an eligible expense, for purposes of the Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy, as of September 27, 2020. Qualifying organizations will be able to take advantage of the rent subsidy on this basis as soon as the application portal is launched.

Quotes

“I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Members of Parliament and Senators from all parties for supporting the timely passage of Bill C-9 to ensure workers and employers get the help they need to get them through the winter and the second wave of COVID-19. Canadians know that in times of crisis we must all work together. Our government will keep taking action to protect jobs, support businesses, and keep Canadians safe and healthy.”

The Hon. Chrystia Freeland, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance

“Across the country, small businesses are the heart of our communities and have shown incredible resilience throughout the COVID-19 crisis. Today, as Bill C-9 receives Royal Assent, we continue to stand with hard-hit businesses and workers to provide vital support through to June 2021. Our government understands that helping business owners and workers now will ensure that we emerge from these challenging times even stronger.”

The Hon. Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade

Quick facts

Over 3.8 million Canadians have had their jobs supported through the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy, with $48 billion paid out in subsidies as of November 8, 2020.

Small- and medium-sized businesses are strongly represented in sectors — like food services (e.g., restaurants), hospitality, tourism, and transportation — which continue to be significantly affected by the virus and the measures taken to contain it.

As of November 12, 2020, the Government of Canada has provided over $2 billion in rent support, through the Canada Emergency Commercial Rent Assistance for small businesses. Rent assistance has helped over 139,000 small business tenants, supporting 1.25 million jobs in Canada.

The new rent subsidy will pick up where the previous program left off, delivering direct, targeted, and accessible rent support to qualifying organizations affected by COVID-19 without the need to work through their landlords. It will provide a subsidy for eligible fixed property expenses, including rent and interest on commercial mortgages. The announced program parameters will apply until December 19, 2020, with future parameters in 2021 to be adapted and targeted as needed.

To formalize rent payable as an eligible expense for purposes of the Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy as of September 27, 2020, the government will introduce legislation in the House of Commons as soon as possible.
