Canada will provide temporary wage subsidy for up to 3 months to allow businesses to keep workers on payroll.
The total Canada aid package totals C$82bn. Canadians will have until August 2020 to pay taxes.
Trudeau added that they are willing to do more to aid economic activity.
The amount of stimulus is much greater than the earlier sources estimate of at least 1% of GDP. ■
