More than $12 million in additional support will be provided to Nova Scotia businesses hit hard by the pandemic and facing province-wide restrictions as a result of a third wave.
The Small Business Impact Grant (Part 3) will be available to restaurants offering in-person dining service, bar or licensed drinking establishments, fitness, recreational and leisure facilities including gyms, yoga studios, indoor play areas, arcades, climbing facilities, dance programs and music lessons, personal services including hair salons, barbershops, spas, nail salons and body art establishments, independent retailers with a physical retail location and live performing arts.
“We are moving to help because we recognize these necessary additional public health protocols are difficult for many businesses,” said Inclusive Economic Growth Minister Labi Kousoulis. “This most recent shutdown is important to stopping the spread of the virus so our businesses can reopen safely as quickly as possible.”
