Relief for Tourism and Aviation Sectors Expected From Ottawa on Monday
Monday could be the day that Canada’s aviation sector and tourism industry have been waiting for.
Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland on Monday will issue a fiscal update on behalf of the Justin Trudeau government. Multiple news outlets have said Freeland is expected to finally announce sector-specific help for airlines and the aviation industry, as well as for tourism and hospitality businesses.
In a report in the Globe and Mail, Susie Grynol, head of the Hotel Association of Canada, said she hopes the government improves existing programs, such as the rent subsidy, wage subsidy and business loans.
