WINNIPEG - Premier Brian Pallister has announced more help for business in the wake of CoVid-19.

It's a summer hiring program to put Manitobans back to work, while also helping business owners.

“We appreciate our many local businesses that temporarily closed their doors, reduced capacity or changed the way they operate in order to help flatten the CoVid-19 curve and follow provincial public health orders,” said Pallister. “Those closures and changes come at a cost to businesses and we want to ease their road to recovery by covering half the wages paid to designated employees over a period of up to 10 weeks this summer.”

Employers can apply to receive funding for up to five employees hired or rehired after June 18th.

The program will reimburse 50 per cent of the total wages paid from June 18th to August 30th, to a maximum of $5,000 per worker and $25,000 per business.
