Coronavirus: Trudeau says wage subsidy program to be extended past June

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the government’s wage subsidy program for employers will be extended past June.

Trudeau did not say how much longer the benefit would be available.

“We’ll have more details next week,” he said. “But to businesses hit by COVID-19, know this: The wage subsidy will continue to be there for you.”
