I hope you are all doing well and staying safe and healthy given the current circumstances. I am here to provide you an update regarding our position as the Share Community Team.
I have made countless inquiries both through calls and letters to numerous officials and I have finally been given some answers. I am currently not allowed to open up the program during the current state of emergency. The current restriction guidelines that I was informed on state that they are only asking grocery stores, pharmacies, and emergency medical health places to remain open. Those who do not comply will be fined.
I would like to bring your attention to the following resource, the Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit (CRCB): https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/benefits/recovery-caregiving-benefit.html. This can provide an opportunity for additional funding given the state of emergency and may be worth checking out regarding your eligibility.
I am sending this out to provide some clarification regarding our stance during the current situation. I understand this is difficult for all of us, but your patience, understanding, and support has been more than appreciated. We hope that we can work together to ensure the safety and well-being of our community.
