As we've moved through the pandemic, various federal funding programs have been developed to assist businesses and individuals.
In this webinar, CRA Liaison Officer, Matthew Hohnsbehn, walks us through the various programs highlighting their benefits and impacts. He'll be joined by MNP Senior Manager, Cara Light, who will provide a perspective from the private sector. Our moderator, Dan Kucherka, CPA, CMA, and Nanaimo Chamber Board Treasurer, will facilitate a question and answer period.
Ensure you're taking full advantage of the programs available, while taking steps to avoid placing yourself or your business in a tax liability position as a result of participating in these benefits programs.
