中小企业帮助–工资补贴75%,无息贷款40,000元等

作为COVID-19支持措施的一部分,加拿大政府将提供75%的工资补贴给符合条件的中小企业。政府的目标是确保在当前的COVID-19危机消退之后,中小企业可以继续经营,保留其雇员的工资并迅速恢复全面运转。

政府还宣布启动“加拿大紧急企业帐户”(CEBA)。该计划将允许符合条件的金融机构为工资低于100万元的小企业提供无息贷款。

我们CCACA相信,许多教会都会发现这两个政府计划有助于缓解由于COVID-19造成的直接财务压力。我们还鼓励教会的领袖们,请向您的C&MA地区办公室咨询,以获取进一步的信息和说明。在这段非同寻常的时刻,让我们继续相信我们的主耶稣,知道「洪水泛滥之时,耶和华坐着为王;耶和华坐着为王,直到永远。耶和华必赐力量给他的百姓;耶和华必赐平安的福给他的百姓。」《诗篇29:10-11》

The Canadian government is offering a 75 per cent wage subsidy to “qualifying” small- and medium-sized businesses as part of new COVID-19 support measures.  The government’s aim is to ensure that small- and medium-sized enterprises can stay in business, retain their employees to the payroll and resume full operation quickly after the current COVID-19 crisis subsides. 

The government also announced launching a “Canada Emergency Business Account” (CEBA). The program will allow eligible financial institutions to provide interest-free loans to small businesses with payrolls of less than $1 million. Those loans in the form of lines of credit up to $40,000 will ensure that small businesses have access to the capital they need to pay for rent and other important costs over the next number of months, the government said 25 per cent of the loan (i.e., $10,000) may be forgiven if the full amount of the loan is paid back by Dec. 31, 2022. 

We, CCACA believe many of our churches would find these two government programs helpful in alleviating immediate financial stress as a result of COVID-19.  We also encourage church leaders to consult with your C&MA District Office for further information and clarifications.  Amid this extraordinary time, let’s continue to trust our Lord Jesus knowing that “the  Lord  sits enthroned over the flood;  the  Lord  is enthroned as King forever.  The  Lord  gives strength to his people;  the  Lord  blesses his people with peace.” (Psalm 29:10-11).
