Apply for CECRA for Small Businesses and Help Commercial Tenants with Rent Relief



COVID–19: CECRA for small businesses

Canada Emergency Commercial Rent Assistance (CECRA) for small businesses provides relief for small businesses experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19. It offers unsecured, forgivable loans to eligible commercial property owners to:

reduce the rent owed by their impacted small business tenants
meet operating expenses on commercial properties

Property owners must offer a minimum of a 75% rent reduction for the months of April, May and June 2020.

We encourage all eligible commercial property owners to participate in this program.

As part of your application, you must provide rent reduction agreement(s) and landlord and tenant attestations.

We are taking a staggered approach for applications


To manage volume, we will be asking property owners to register on the following days.
