Regional Relief and Recovery Fund - Quebec
As a complement to Canada's COVID-19 Economic Response Plan, the Government of Canada has established a Regional Relief and Recovery Fund (RRRF), an initiative with an envelope of close to $319 million for Quebec.
The RRRF aims to help Quebec businesses and organizations that need immediate assistance with their cashflow. It is intended for all of Quebec’s economic sectors (aviation, cultural and sporting events, food production, manufacturing, retail, technology, tourism, etc.). Projects from the tourism sector, which is particularly affected, could be prioritized. Community organizations or social not-for-profit organizations are not eligible for funding. Certain eligibility restrictions apply to self-employed workers and sole proprietorships.
Check out the program details and Frequently asked questions to find out more about the terms of the RRRF.
Additional assistance for clients who already have an RRRF project with CED
If you have already received financial support through the RRRF, please note that a period of 12 months rather than 6 months can now be considered to assess your need for funding.
In addition, for funding of $60,000 or less, a portion of the contribution (up to $20,000) could become non-repayable if certain reimbursement terms are met by December 31, 2022. Furthermore, the maximum amount of assistance is $1 million.
To submit an application to increase your financial support, do not use the RRRF form; please contact us at 1-800-561-0633.
