We’re here to help

To help you navigate these challenging times, this page provides information on pandemic-related restrictions, support measures, government services, and useful CFIB resources for Ontario. You’ll also learn how CFIB is fighting for your business.

Update: The Ontario government announced that capacity limits on certain businesses are lifted as of October 9, 2021. These businesses include concert venues, theatres/cinemas, spectator areas of sports and recreational fitness facilities, meeting/event spaces, racing venues and commercial film/TV productions with studio audiences. All other limits, including those on restaurants, gyms, dance studios and recreational fitness businesses remain in place. View the latest government announcement here.


Help us amplify your voice for better support

Ontario small businesses have been among the longest-restricted businesses in the world. More financial support is needed to make sure as many as possible make it to the other side of the pandemic!

As Ontario reopens its economy, protecting your staff, customers, and business is a top priority. We’ve put together an operational plan template to help you do just that. With tips for best practices, advice on meeting provincial compliance requirements, and links to downloadable COVID-19 resources, the plan is clear, concise, and easy to tailor to your needs.
