The Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy Extension was just announced today by the prime minister this morning. The news is definitely a relief for the many businesses struggling to stay afloat during this pandemic. How long is the extension for and when does the program end? See below:
What is the Canada Emergency Wage subsidy? Quick Review
Here’s a quick summary from a CBC article today: “The program covers 75 per cent of wages, up to a weekly maximum of $847, for workers at eligible companies and non-profits affected by the economic slowdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Originally the program went from March 15, 2020 to August 29, 2020. This meant that an employer could collect a 75% wage subsidy on an employee’s wages up to 24 weeks as per the government’s website. For more details on the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy Program, please look at my original article regarding this.

As mentioned earlier, the prime minister announced that the government will be extending the program until December 2020. The exact weeks extension and when you can apply for the extension was not announced as of yet. Once further details are given, we will update these details.
As mentioned above, many small businesses will welcome the extension of the program as the economy recovery from the pandemic is slow. Also, with uncertainties surrounding covid-19 such as a potential second wave, many businesses are worried about their future. And any help during this unstable time is good help for sure. Stay safe!
Is it time to up your homemade latte game? Then we have exactly what you need to make perfect coffeehouse coffees at home – the best homemade milk frother! Breville frothers consistently receive rave reviews from customers, who say these machines create perfect foam for drinks like lattes and cappuccinos. No more will you need to pop to the coffee shop to get the best coffees!
Important Features of the Breville Milk Cafe Frother:
Uses induction heating to create evenly heated milk for lattes, cappucinos and hot chocolate. Yum! (The induction burner is built right in!)
Temperature control gauge allows you to choose exactly the right temp for the milk – from regular to extra hot! (I always order my lattes extra hot, so this feature is awesome.)
Holds up to 3 cups of frothed milk, or as little as 1/2 cup of milk to froth.
4.5/5 star rating with over 2500 ratings given!
Creates the finest/smallest milk bubbles for a superfine froth that makes the most delicious frothed milk hot drinks. This is accomplished by a spinner that works as the milk heats up.
Automatically turns off when correct temperature is reached.
Easy to clean – stainless steel frothing jug can even go in the dishwasher! Dishwasher safe, hooray! Also, because the heat element in this heater/frother is induction, it won’t create the gooey mess on the bottom of the stainless milk jug! Another big positive.
Two different mixing paddles for stirring and frothing the milk: one for lattes and one for cappuccinos. The one for cappuccino makes the finest froth, so go with that one if you want the most delicate and delicious milk froth. Just like at the coffee shop!
And with the sale price of $149.99, this is a great time to get an excellent barista-quality frother!

There’s nothing better than a fresh batch of muffins! But, sometimes you come to realize that it’s time to replace your old muffin pans. You know…like when they look like something that went through the wars? Yes, it is time!
Silicone muffin pans make baking muffins easier than ever. And today we’re sharing this 20% off sale at Linen Chest on Trudeau 12-cup silicone muffin pans. As with any muffin pans, be sure to still grease the pans a bit before adding the muffin batter. You can use less fat greasing the pans when you use silicone, but you’ll still need some. You can use either butter, margarine or oil such as canola oil or sunflower oil. By greasing the pans, this will ensure that the muffins will pop out easily.
And – if you love making egg muffins (also known as muffin cup quiches or muffin cup omelets), then silicone pans make it a lot easier to remove these from the pan. You simply pop them out! You can’t so that with a metal pan, let me tell you…
Canadian Seniors will receive a one time covid-19 relief payment this week as announced by the government earlier in the week. The goal is to help seniors curb rising costs for things such as grocery deliveries and prescriptions. During this pandemic, seniors have been one of the hardest groups affected. This payment is one way that the government wanted to lightened their load. This one-time payment is tax free.
Canadian Seniors Receive Covid-19 Payment Relief, How Much?
Canadian seniors can receive up to $500.00 in a one-time payment from the government. Here’s the breakdown from a recent article below:
“Any senior who is eligible for the Old Age Security (OAS) pension will receive a $300 payment, and an additional $200 is being sent to seniors eligible for the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS).
The federal government estimates there are currently 6.7 million seniors who are eligible for the OAS pension and 2.2 million who are eligible for the GIS. These payments are set to total $2.5 billion.”
Canadian Seniors Receive Covid-19 Paymet Relief, When and How?
The payment is directly made to any senior who is eligible. No application is needed to apply. Here are the payment details from the same article:
“Seniors who reside in Canada can expect to receive the payment by direct deposit or cheque this week, whereas seniors who reside outside Canada can expect this one-time payment in July for those on direct deposit, or by cheque with delays given international postal disruptions,” said the government in a statement.
For Canadian seniors, any help is good as they have been hit hard by COVID-19. As a result, they have to take extra precautions to stay safe. This has resulted in taking on a greater financial burden with limited income for many. Because of that, Canadian seniors will gladly accept the covid-19 one-time payment as every little bit helps.
