OMG Folks - finally the news we've been waiting for.... Toronto will be in Stage 2 starting this Wednesday, June 24!!!

Good Morning Again, The PM just completed his morning briefing and announced that the CERB program will be extended for 8 more weeks. So this will take the program through July and August. I know that for our BIA members who haven't been able to reopen yet this will provide some help. We will continue to push to see if we can get the Wage Subsidy and the CECRA programs extended as well. Thanks, Susan

Good Afternoon All, I'm so very sorry to report that in his briefing this afternoon Premier Ford did not allow Toronto to move to Stage 2. I know this is not the news we were all hoping to hear today. The new Covid case numbers in Toronto are still too high - and although they're coming down, they aren't coming down consistently. So we will have to wait until next Monday to see if we can move to Stage 2…

Good Morning All, I have a few things for you this morning: 1. First off - today the Province of Ontario is listing 182 new cases of Covid - this marks the 5th day in a row that we have been under the 300 new case count. This coming Monday, June 15 the Premier will announce who next can move to Stage 2. Fingers crossed that these lower numbers might mean that Toronto is able to move to Stage 2.…
