Q: Will job loss or loss of income due to the COVID-19 emergency be considered when determining whether an individual or family is considered to be low- or moderate-income?
A: CRA encourages activities that benefit low- or moderate-income individuals and families. This includes individuals and families who have recently become low- or moderate-income due to lost jobs, decreased hours, or furloughs that will reduce income due to the COVID-19 emergency.
