Amid the current COVID-19 pandemic, I’ve been trying to think of a way I could build some kind of resource list from information on small business support updates, to a list of shop local female founders, to free resources to help with wellness, so here goes:

I appreciate how difficult this time is for small business, my father has a food based business that had to be closed so this is an issue close to my heart and I hope the list of resources below from CPA Canada and Numbercrunch will be helpful.

CPA Canada Resources: I’m proud to be part of the CPA community and the resources it’s put together, here’s a list compiled from the CPA Canada website:
