With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic persisting and expected to continue well into 2021, both the federal and Ontario governments have implemented new and modified special measures and programs to relieve some of the burden currently being experienced by individuals and organizations, including charities and not-for-profits. From a public health perspective, the Ontario government has also implemented additional measures to slow down the spread of COVID-19. This Charity and NFP Bulletin provides a brief overview of some of the recent special measures being adopted by the federal and Ontario governments. However, it is not intended to be comprehensive, but rather provides a brief update and summary of these measures which, given the volatile nature of the pandemic, may change at any given time.

For the balance of this Bulletin, please see Charity & NFP Law Bulletin No. 480.
