Our nation is in the midst of the rapidly evolving COVIS-19 pandemic, and all of us are paying close attention to what our governments at the city, provincial and federal levels are going to do to help people navigate through this unknown period of time that will surely impact people financially. Many provinces are altering the Landlord and Tenant acts to ensure people stay housed; Financial Institutions are implementing ways for people to manage their mortgage payments, and many of our other service providers for mobile and internet are finding ways to help their customers as well. Every day a new announcement comes out, providing important information to help people across Canada.
Organizations like nabs are not able to take on the financial impact of this virus, and we are not accepting applications for financial support due to this crisis at this time. Our ability as an organization to fundraise and offer critical programs to our industry will be significantly impacted. We will continue to evaluate this position, in the context of other government and employer relief programs that are being announced each day. We are working with industry leaders across Canada, to develop a short and longer term strategy for the people in our industry.
We are all in this together, and there is a nation working together at all levels to help people – and assistance is coming, each day, to help us all manage the financial and emotional impact of this pandemic. Please monitor reliable news sources carefully to determine what programs you may apply to access emergency relief and help you manage in the days and weeks ahead. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
In certain circumstances, nabs will provide short term financial assistance to eligible applicants who are in financial distress and have a clear financial need. The application process includes customized financial counselling and review by a confidential committee.
Our industry is stressful enough without the setbacks that life can sometimes throw at us. We provide expert financial counselling and short term financial assistance when people need assistance due to illness, injury or unemployment. Let us help you get back on track. Inquiries about assistance and eligibility may be directed to Louise Berube firstname.lastname@example.org
