Alberta Premier Jason Kenney announces more support for businesses affected by COVID-19 restrictions



At a news conference in Edmonton, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney announces his government is offering a grant of up to $10,000 to support small businesses affected by public health measures that are in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the third round of such payments since the province introduced its relaunch grant program in 2020, and the grant will now also be available to hotels, taxis and ride-sharing services. Doug Schweitzer, the province’s minister of jobs, economy and innovation, also takes part in the news conference. (April 13, 2021)
