The world around us is slowly opening back up and some of you may be in the process of returning to work or re-opening your business.
With that in mind, we had a discussion with our Liability Insurance Team to make sure you will still be covered when you go back to work. We were advised that as long as your business is practicing the government guidlines set forth in your area for a safe work environment, you will be covered.
In our profession, we are often working with people who aren't in the best health. As we know, people who are immune compromised, elderly and have medical conditions such as asthma or other lung issues, heart related issues, cancer and diabetes are at a much greater risk of having severe complications or death should they catch COVID-19. It is our responsibility as practitioners to reduce the risk of harm and infection as much as possible.
We have put a list of protocols in place for you to follow:
Extended school closures have presented parents with the new challenge of learning to juggle work life, with keeping kids occupied in a productive way and ensuring the wellbeing and mental health of everyone in your home.
We have compiled some great resources that can help fill your kids days during the corona virus outbreak and allow you to have some much needed "me" time or give you a break while you get some work done.
Here are some additional details on the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB).
If you have lost income because of COVID-19, the CERB will provide you with temporary income support. The CERB will provide you with $500 a week for up to 16 weeks.
To be eligible to receive the CERB from Service Canada, the following must apply:

As such, it has advised that you register this account and direct deposit in advance of the application process opening. Benefits will start within 10 days of you submitting your application. You will need to apply and confirm eligibility every 4 weeks thereafter.
