Update to CEBA eligibility - page updated July 24

The Federal Government has announced its intent to expand the CEBA program so that more small firms will be able to access it. More details regarding the expansion and the timing of implementation are still to come. However, the government did announce that the program will be made available to sole proprietors receiving income directly from their businesses, businesses that rely on contractors, and family-owned corporations that pay employees through dividends rather than payroll. The government is working on solutions for new businesses who have not yet filed a tax return, and businesses operating out of personal bank accounts. Read more on the Canada Emergency Business Account page.
