COVID-19 Government Support Apr-01-2020

COVID-19 and Business

April 01, 2020

Written by: Atul Oka, Senior Director of Strategy and Business Development, DUKE Heights BIA

The survival of any business in the current environment relies on its ability to adapt and ride out this period of low economic activity. In order to do this, businesses will first need to evaluate the impact of social distancing and supply chain disruptions to their ability to drive sales and generate income.

If your business is deemed to be non-essential, has a physical presence and supplies product or services to your clients over the counter, or face to face, you will have seen a significant drop to your sales over the last few weeks.  You are unsure what the future holds, and how you go about planning for something that seems vague and does not have an analogue in our generation, which can be used to help plan our response. There is information overload, reduced income, forced closures, kids at home, employees to pay, rental overheads, and a skyrocketing infection rate. All of which add to the uncertainty facing you and many of your neighbours.

The best way to deal with all of this and find a path forward, is to look at each aspect one at a time and try to find solutions or mitigation strategies for each, which when combined gives us direction.

At the moment, the main issue facing businesses is the drop in income while carrying the same level of expenses, so let’s first focus on these.

If you have employees, you may be grappling with what to do. Refer to our other piece also in this newsletter titled “Employers and Layoff during COVID-19 Crisis”. This may provide you with some clarity and ideas. Pay special attention to the 75% small business wage subsidy announced recently by the federal government.

If you are a property owner, and have a mortgage, you will be able to take advantage of the six-month mortgage deferral program currently offered at 6 major banks. Speak to your bank representative first, to see how this will impact your loan, the accumulated interest, and your credit rating so you can make an educated decision. If you however rent your premises, you should have an open discussion with your landlord to see if there is a compromise that can be reached. There are many business groups and associations currently highlighting this challenge to various levels of government, with the hope of additional support however it may be prudent to be proactive and start discussion with your landlord so you both may be able to plan.

A range of recently announced economic relief programs including the Business Credit Availability Program (BCAP), interest free loans, loan guarantees, tax and utility deferrals, and reduced electricity rates, when taken together should provide some additional breathing room for businesses.

The drop in economic activity now becomes the most pressing concern. Businesses are taking a variety of different approaches which you may find useful for your business.

Many businesses banded together to start offering delivery services. Speak to your neighbours and see if you are able to jointly initiate a delivery service of your own. Many food delivery companies such as Uber eats have also started offering free delivery to support the food and restaurant business sector. It may worthwhile investigating leveraging existing or creating your own delivery service.

Another way to improve sales is to take your business online. Many services such as law, and accounting can be done remotely with the aid of a few online tools. Physical products can be sold through channels such as Amazon, ebay, Kijiji, and perhaps your own e-commerce site. The BIA is working with a few partners to help businesses who do not have an online presence create a website and assist in transitioning to e-commerce. Please keep an eye on our website www.dukeheights.ca and look out for more communication from us in this regard.

If you have any ideas that can help other businesses or how the BIA can assist, please contact us at business@dukeheights.ca.

Employers and Layoff during COVID-19 Crisis

April 01, 2020

Written by: Shraddha Gotad, Workforce Development Coordinator, DUKE Heights BIA

The global outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) is creating significant challenges for employers at all levels and organizations of all sizes. When faced with a crisis, most employers may be forced to think and behave in ways that feel unfamiliar. Whether it’s a technological, financial, natural, or health crisis at work or in the community, crises demand that leaders take an emergency response plan and adapt it as new evidence and factors present themselves.

Many employers are reluctant to let staff go because it is difficult to find the right talent in the tough labour market. Many employers have already halted their recruitment efforts and are taking a “wait and see” approach before making any decisions at all about downsizing.

Given the current economic challenges that continue to grow, many employers are also considering the unfortunate prospect of temporarily laying off staff, reducing business hours, services or even closing their doors completely.

Can an employer temporarily lay off employees until business improves?

This is difficult for many employers because they find themselves in an unprecedented situation. But although some laws have been amended, the fundamental law hasn’t changed. There’s always an assumption that if things slow down, if you don’t have much work, you can just send people home for a little while. However, unless there’s either an explicit agreement in the contract or it’s implied by the nature of the workplace or industry, then you may not have that right. A temporary layoff without the express or implied consent of the employee is constructive dismissal.

The government has announced aid and support that can assist businesses to avoid layoffs, and help sustain themselves through the COVID-19 crisis. The aid is expected to be delivered through the following programs.

  • Extended work-sharing programs from 36 weeks to 76 weeks
  • Up to 75 percent wage subsidy for qualifying businesses for up to 3 months retroactive to March 15, 2020.
  • Business Credit Availability Program (BCAP) to provide $65 billion of additional support through the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) and Export Development Canada (EDC).
  • The EDC will provide a guarantee (a form of a backstop) for your loan with your financial institution, giving your financial institution the assurance to give you access to credit.
  • BDC will provide working capital loans of up to $2 million with flexible terms and payment postponements for up to six months for qualifying businesses.
  • The new Canada Emergency Business Account will provide interest-free loans of up to $40,000 to small businesses and not-for-profits, to help cover their operating costs
  • Under the Temporary Employer Health Tax(EHT) exemption, the province will be cutting taxes by $355 million for about 57,000 employers through a proposed temporary increase to the Employer Health Tax (EHT) exemption.
  • The Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) is allowing employers to defer payments until August 31, 2020
  • Grace period for property taxes and utility bills, the city will be suspending automated withdrawals and provide a 60 day grace period for property taxes and utility bills

However, assuming that as an employer you do have the right or that the employee agrees to a temporary layoff, then employment standards legislation sets out some guidelines,. Generally, a temporary layoff is considered to be a temporary period in which the employer ceases to provide work (and usually pay) to employees. So, for example, in Ontario, you can temporarily lay someone off for up to 13 weeks in any consecutive 20-week period. This can be extended up to 35 weeks in some circumstances within any consecutive 52-week period. Where the layoff extends beyond the prescribed temporary period of time described by the legislation,  termination obligations will apply.

Employees on layoff may be entitled to federal employment insurance benefits in Canada.

If the temporary layoff is not an option for the employers they can also consider the below options

  • Offering unpaid leaves of absence
  • Asking for voluntary layoffs
  • Asking for a voluntary reduction in wages or hours of work

Many of these need careful implementation (and the assistance of legal counsel) and/or may not be possible in workplaces with a collective agreement.

As an employer it is very important not to make assumptions about how the law works, as any wrong decision, can result in high chances of inadvertently exposing yourself to a wrongful dismissal claim. However, if as an employer you are still considering the possibility of temporarily laying off your employees due to the significant slowdown in business as a consequence of the COVID-19 crisis, then you should ensure that you do so in accordance with the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which your business operates. To ensure this, it would be wise to seek the support of legal counsel.

For more information refer to the Ontario Employment Standards Act, 2000 (ESA), Canada’s COVID-19 Economic Response Plan.

Ward 6 Councillor’s Corner: Challenges Ahead, But Together We Will Get Back On Course

April 01, 2020

Businesses have always experienced pressures and disruptions, but this global pandemic will show just how resilient the DUKE Heights community really is.

Dear Neighbours,

It feels like just yesterday that I was sharing with you the exciting improvements coming to the DUKE Heights community. From infrastructure upgrades to Bikeshare pilots, these improvements, as important and as they are, can now no longer be our sole focus going forward. Residents and businesses in our community, like many in various communities in our city and around the country, now face a new challenge, one that I am confident the DUKE Heights community will overcome.

Though COVID-19 has presented a considerable challenge to our communities and businesses, we must all work together during this time to protect our families, colleagues and loved ones, especially those who are most vulnerable, such as seniors and those who are immunocompromised. I know that many businesses in Duke Heights rely on the steady flow of goods in and out of the area. While some businesses have been able to continue operating at normal capacity, all businesses will in some way feel the effects of this pandemic, whether it be through supply chains, customers practicing social distancing and refraining from non-essential purchases to maintaining productivity with employees working home.

I want to assure you that city staff from all divisions are working tirelessly to ensure the health and safety of residents, employees and businesses across this city, and that our local government has assembled a COVID-19 Task Force, as well as an Economic Support and Recovery Task Force composed of key staff and agencies working to maintain public safety, slow the spread of this virus and get our economy back on track.

I would like to let you know that my staff and I are here for you, to help with whatever you might need in any way that we can. This challenge is unlike any our community has faced. We have been put in this challenge together, and we will get through it together.

Sincerely,

City Councillor James Pasternak
Ward 6 – York Centre

Ward 7 Councillor’s Corner: Coronavirus: COVID–19 Update

April 01, 2020

The Coronavirus – COVID-19 has impacted all of us. It is important to listen to the recommendations of all levels of government and to prioritize our health and safety, along with the well-being of our city and country. Social distancing and patience, along with focusing on self-care are extremely important right now.

If you need groceries, do not go out in groups or with your family as if it were a social outing. You can go for walks, but you need to keep 6 feet of space between you and others. Park amenities and playgrounds are closed to prevent public gatherings. If you do not live with someone, you should not invite them over and you should not be visiting them. If you need to drop off groceries for someone in need, leave them at the front door.

If you have any concerns, questions or need access to resources, please give my office a call at: (416) 338-5335 or email councillor_perruzza@toronto.ca. My staff will continue to provide support, even as the situation changes.

For regular updates follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or subscribe to my regular e-newsletter updates by visiting www.anthonyperruzza.com

For questions about the help available for local businesses, the City of Toronto is developing an Economic Support & Recovery Task Force to complement the Government of Canada’s COVID-19 Economic Response Plan.

Please visit: toronto.ca/home/covid-19/economic-support-recovery/

For questions related to Employment Insurance and the Emergency Response Benefit, the Government of Canada is updating their website regularly. Those with children may qualify for certain benefits.

Please visit: canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/corporate/notices/coronavirus.html

Property Taxes: toronto.ca/services-payments/property-taxes-utilities/property-tax/property-due-dates/

Many people are experiencing anxiety and worry, and I want you to know that there are numbers that you can call if you would like to speak with someone who can assist with stress management.

City Council Update: Ward 7

anthony-perruzza
March 01, 2020

At City Council’s meeting on February 19, I presented two motions, both of which passed. One extended library hours across 8 library branches. The purpose of the extension is to allow for the full operation of Youth Hubs at these locations. This will result in adding 5,538 hours annually to the Centennial, Downsview, Flemington Park, Jane/Dundas, Kennedy/Eglinton, Mount Dennis, Sanderson and Weston branches. This will allow these libraries to stay open longer during the evenings as well as on weekends, making them more accessible for youth and all users.

The second motion requested a report back from Revenue Services before the 2021 budget process on the status of tax ratios. The purpose of the motion is to request information on the current systems in place regarding different property classes, including the relationship between the Commercial Tax and Residential Tax Rates. We need to rethink our model in order to make sure that corporate entities pay appropriately, and that smaller, independent businesses and homeowners are treated more fairly when it comes to property taxes.

New Constituency Office Update:

As of March 2, 2020, our Constituency Office is now located at 2350 Finch Avenue West, Unit C. I will be sharing further updates shortly. Look out for my Spring Newsletter which will also include the updated hours for this new location.

Political Blind Date Update:

I was on Season 3 of Political Blind Date on TVO Docs. Visit tvo.org and watch Episode 2, where Councillor Jim Karygiannis and I discuss transit needs in the suburbs.

As always, you can email me at: councillor_perruzza or call my office at: (416) 338-5335.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

More great things to come for Duke Heights in 2020

james-pasternak
March 01, 2020

 

The new year is here and exciting new developments are taking place all throughout York Centre and Duke Heights.

Dear neighbours,

Improvements to accessibility is one of the key focuses of the coming year, and my office will continue to make sure that local street lighting, sidewalk connectivity, cycling infrastructure and other city assets are there to help workers and residents get to and from work safely. Improvements to the pedestrian realm will be made with the proposed reconstruction of sidewalks on Chesswood, Alness and Flint. As well, I am pleased to announce that BikeShareTO, the city’s bike share program, will be launching a pilot project along the Finch hydro corridor, with bike stations located along the path. Users will be able to pick-up and drop-off bikes at various stations along the corridor to enjoy surrounding green spaces, and we will be working on adding additional stations at Downsview Park and York University. Green spaces are important for any community to be healthy and livable, and the Duke Heights BIA has championed the cause of transforming city owned land into green space with a proposal to establish a parkette at the Dufferin Transfer Station, creating a valuable social node. We are also beautifying the east side of Dufferin Street with investments in public realm projects, art work, seating and vegetation.

Adding to services available, I am pleased to announce that the North York Outpatient Hospital will be opening at the Champagne Centre, and we are excited to be breaking ground on a new fire station on Keele Street just south of Sheppard Avenue West that will service much of the Duke Heights community. The Toronto Public Library’s Downsview branch is open after much needed renovations, and we are pleased with the preliminary designs of the new Centennial library.

As always, I am happy to speak anytime. Please do not hesitate to contact me at 416-392-1371 or councillor_pasternak@toronto.ca. Community updates are available at www.jamespasternak.ca.
