Businesses impacted by the latest public health restrictions in Nova Scotia can now apply for support through the Sector Impact Support Program.

“This recent wave of the pandemic has been challenging for many businesses across our province, and with these public health restrictions, additional support is needed,” said Economic Development Minister Susan Corkum-Greek. “We know this help can’t come soon enough, and we will continue to be there to support our business sector and position ourselves for recovery as quickly as possible.”

The Sector Impact Support Program will provide a one-time grant to help small business owners in industries such as restaurants, bars, gyms, live performing arts facilities and recreation facilities. Eligible businesses can receive a grant of $2,500, $5,000 or $7,500 based on gross payroll cost or gross revenue in November 2021.
