Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the new wage subsidy program will cover all businesses whose revenue has dropped by at least 30 per cent because of COVID-19.
That includes non-profits and charities.
Trudeau revealed more details about the previously announced program this morning.
He says there is no restriction on the number of employees a company must have in order to qualify.
Under the program, the government will cover 75 per cent of salary on the first $58,700 a person earns.
