Around the world, the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve rapidly. I want you to know that we’re working around the clock & doing everything we can to support our economy & keep you safe. And yesterday, we announced additional measures we’re taking to do just that. ⤵️

.@MarcGarneau announced we are delaying the start of the cruise ship season until July 1st at the earliest, and we are not allowing any cruise ships to dock in Northern communities this season. More on how this will help prevent the spread of COVID-19: 

.@BillMorneau also announced that we are providing $10 billion in support to Canadian businesses through @BDC_ca and @ExportDevCanada. This will help stabilize our economy & protect workers right across the country. Get more info on this support here: 

.@FP_Champagne has advised that you avoid all non-essential travel outside Canada. We’ve also enhanced screening & detection processes at all international airports, and land border, ferry, and rail ports of entry to slow the spread of COVID-19. More info: 

These are significant steps - and we will do more if needed - because protecting our economy & keeping you safe is our top priority. We’ll continue to work with all orders of government, businesses, and public health officials. And we will get through this together.
