Sur­rey Board of Trade Wants Changes to Com­mer­cial Rent Re­lief Pro­gram

- Business · Surrey

The Canada Emer­gency Com­mer­cial Rent As­sis­tance (CECRA) pro­gram was ex­plained as fol­lows: the gov­ern­ment will pay 50% of your rent, the land­lord will cover 25%, and the ten­ant will only have to pay 25%.

Un­for­tu­nately, this has been an over-sim­pli­fi­ca­tion of the pro­gram. “What busi­nesses are dis­cov­er­ing is that there are more re­quire­ments, ex­pec­ta­tions and costs,” said Anita Hu­ber­man, CEO, Sur­rey Board of Trade.
