75% Wage Subsidy Update 
Businesses and non-profit organizations seeing a drop of at least 30 per cent in revenue due to COVID-19 will qualify for the government's 75 per cent wage subsidy program, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced today. For those companies experiencing a decrease in revenues of at least 30 per cent, the government will cover up to 75 percent of a salary on the first $58,700, which could mean payments of up to $847 a week. The prime minister  encouraged businesses to top up their employees wages with the remaining 25 per cent of their salaries.Trudeau said the number of people a business employs will not determine its eligibility. Charities and companies big and small will qualify and the wage subsidies will be retroactive to March 15, 2020. More details of the program will be unveiled March 31 by Finance Minister Bill Morneau.
