COVID-19 rent and property expense support for businesses

As a business, non-profit organization, or charity in Canada who has seen a drop in revenue during the COVID-19 pandemic, you may be eligible for a subsidy to cover part of your commercial rent or property expenses.

Depending on the period you are applying for, you may be eligible to claim your commercial rent or property expenses through one of the following:

  • Tourism and Hospitality Recovery Program (THRP) – Rent
    Effective: October 24, 2021, to May 7, 2022
  • Hardest-Hit Business Recovery Program (HHBRP) – Rent
    Effective: October 24, 2021, to May 7, 2022
  • Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy (CERS)
    Effective: September 27, 2020, to October 23, 2021

Many of the eligibility and calculation rules for the rent subsidy under the THRP and the HHBRP are the same as they were for the CERS.

If you are eligible for a base rent subsidy, you may also be eligible for a top-up if your business location is significantly affected by a public health restriction for a week or more.

Next deadline

  • January 27, 2022: Last day to apply for period 11 of the CERS

Next period opens

  • Claim period 24 will be open for applications in February. Details on the exact date will be available soon.
