„Fighting COVID-19 and revitalizing our economy safely requires a Team Canada approach. We will continue to work with the provinces and territories to keep Canadians safe and healthy, and build a stronger Canada. The money can be used to help operators purchase additional cleaning products, safety equipment and other upgrades needed to meet health guidelines in the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic, the province said in a tuesday press release. The agreement will also help provide timely funding to municipalities so they can provide the essential services Canadians need every day, such as local public transportation.B. In addition, it includes measures to help Canadian workers during these difficult times, such as ensuring safe child care to help parents return to work, and providing income assistance for people who do not have paid sick leave, so that all Canadians can stay healthy. „We need child care to support our economic recovery, so that more parents can return to work, because they know their children are in a safe and healthy environment,“ Schulz said. To support the recovery of the economy, the Government of Canada will invest $4.05 billion in the purchase of PSA for national distribution to the provinces and territories, $500 million to support the purchase of PSA for the non-health sector and $3 billion directly in the provinces and territories for previous and planned psa investments. To facilitate future procurement, provinces and territories will regularly share relevant PPE data with the Canadian government. As we enter the fall and the world continues to face the effects of COVID-19, the Canadian government continues to focus on keeping Canadians safe and healthy, while continuing to ensure they have the help they need during this global health and health crisis. The Canadian government is committed to ensuring that Canada has the resources it needs to revitalize the economy safely while protecting the health of Canadians. In partnership with the provinces and territories, federal efforts will focus on seven priorities to meet the immediate needs of Canadians over the next six to eight months.
Premiers believe that these funds must be used quickly to protect the health and safety of our citizens and to make a real contribution to the recovery of the economy. In this case, appropriations for all priorities are transferred directly to Ontario pursuant to Section 60.2 (2) b) of the Federal Financial Administration Act. This one-time transfer is in addition to a September transfer for the second tranche of trial funding and is with the exception of the federal Pan-Canadian Sick Leave program and federal operating expenses for testing, contact tracking, data management and PSA. The agreement will also directly support Canadian workers, including safe child care, to help parents return to service. It will also provide income assistance for people without paid sick leave and will take steps to protect the most vulnerable, such as Canada`s seniors. In May, the province announced the child care program, which provides $17.8 million to ensure that child care can return to business safely and help Alberta families.
