This communication from the ELCIC national and synodical treasurers includes information that will be of interest to your congregation about subsidies that were included in the 2021 federal budget that was announced in April and passed into law in late June. These include an extension to the existing Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) and a new subsidy, the Canada Recovery Hiring program (CRHP).
This communication contains updated information announced by the Government of Canada relating to COVID-19 financial assistance that is available to congregations, considerations when charging fees to members and a reminder about the filing deadline for the 2020 T3010 Charity Information Return.
In light of the many challenges that the Synod, its 181 congregations and individual members faced over the past year, when the Synod’s financial books closed at the end of 2020, the bottom line was unexpected, but most welcome!
