The CEBA deadline is here

The federal government has set Jan. 18 as the deadline for small businesses to pay off debt from the pandemic-related CEBA program. Ottawa paid out almost $49 billion in CEBA loans to nearly 900,000 small businesses during the pandemic, as many were forced to close their doors or limit their operations.

If a business has repaid the remaining portion of the loan, it can retain up to $20.000 of the maximum $60.000 loan. As of Friday, any outstanding loans will be converted into three-year, interest-only loans with a five-per-cent annual rate. According to the finance department’s summer numbers, only about one in every five of the nearly 900,000 CEBA loans have been repaid, though they anticipate a large influx of repayments leading up to Jan 18th.

The CEBA loan forgiveness deadline has been postponed two times by the Liberal government, but Justin Trudeau said Wednesday that Ottawa will not postpone it a third time.

  1. Another jackpot and colossal screw up of billions lost by the delusional drama teacher that can never be fixed. The country is going to hell in a hand basket under this losers rule. Too bad that he is too brainless to realize that he is not wanted and needs to step down.
