We'll start the morning off with a little networking opportunity and a sneak peek at some of the content that will be shared in the afternoon for the full showing of presentations. This is the opportunity that we get to hear from a number of municipal leaders and influential organizations from across the Parkland. MORE DETAILS TO COME.

COVID-19: Recent Federal Updates
You Should Know About
Budget 2021 proposed to introduce a new Canada Recovery Hiring Program for eligible employers that continue to experience qualifying declines in revenues relative to before the pandemic.
The subsidy will offset a portion of the extra costs employers take on as they reopen, either by increasing wages or hours worked, or hiring more staff.
This support would only be available for active employees and will be available from June 6 to November 20, 2021. Eligible employers would claim the higher of the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy or this new subsidy. The aim is to make it as easy as possible for businesses to hire new workers as the economy reopens. For details, click here.
New legislation has been introduced as part of the 2021 Federal Budget to extend the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy
for four additional four-week periods, beginning June 3 and ending Sept. 25, 2021.
There are no significant changes to the overall calculations of the CEWS in these additional four periods; however, the percentages used to calculate the CEWS will result in a decline in the amount of government support over Periods 17 to 20.
The reduction in CEWS support reflects the expected recovery of the Canadian economy over the next few months. Beginning in Period 18 (July 4 to July 31, 2021), a business must demonstrate a revenue decline of over 10% to be eligible for the CEWS.

New legislation has been introduced as part of the 2021 Federal Budget to extend the Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy to Sept. 25, 2021, with support gradually being phased out beginning July 4, 2021.
Beginning with Period 17*, only employers with a revenue decline in excess of 10% will be eligible for the CERS. The maximum subsidy rate of 65% will be extended to period 17 (June 6 to July 3, 2021) and then gradually decrease to:
  • 60% for Period 18 (July 4 to 31, 2021)
  • 40% for Period 19 (August 1 to 28, 2021)
  • 20% for Period 20 (August 28, 2021, to Sept. 25, 2021)
The Lockdown Support Program rate of 25% will be extended from June 4 to Sept. 25, 2021. If the minimum requirement of a revenue decline of over 10% is not met, the business will be precluded from eligibility for both the base subsidy and the top-up subsidy.
