Hey! We hope you've been staying safe during this outbreak. We know it must be a tense time for you, depending on your situation. That's why we're here to help you out - so we can all get through this together.
We've collected all the information we could get our hands on to answer the questions you're probably asking right now about COVID-19.
INCOME + JOBS
Regardless of our occupation, we've all felt the effects of COVID-19 on our jobs and income. Some of us now face a cash flow problem to cover basic necessities.
We've included some information and tools so that you can take advantage of emergency support to get you through this.
What supports are available to help you make rent? What are your rights as a tenant during COVID-19? What about mortgage deferrals?
We've put together the information you need to answer these questions, and others like "How do I live with roommates during self-isolation?", "What's going on with utilities right now?", and more.
You're either in school, or have kids that need to go to school. We've compiled the information you need on K-12, post-secondary (including finances), and international student supports during the outbreak.
