  • National parks, historic sites to gradually reopen in June, environment minister says

"If you're expecting a 25% drop in income this season, you'll get support to cover 75% of your losses, up to about $10,000", said the prime minister.

As he pledged close to $470 million to support fish harvesters, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also said people should "buy Canadian" food to keep fishery workers and farmers in business during the COVID-19 pandemic. As well, there will be non-repayable grants of $10,000 for harvesters who own their own boats.

Mr. Trudeau said Employment Insurance rules would be changed so harvesters can apply for EI benefits based on their earning from previous years.

The federal government is also launching a $100-million Agriculture and Food Business Solutions fund for agri-food companies facing unexpected financial strain.

During his daily media briefing outside his home in Ottawa, the prime minister announced almost $400 million in funding directed at helping Indigenous communities during the pandemic.

Last month the federal government announced $9 billion in benefits for students, with applications for monthly support worth $1,250-2,000 opening on Friday.

"Over the last two months, a lot of Canadians have faced very challenging situations and very hard choices".

The prime minister said the decision around which parks will be reopening will be made in line with the current severity of COVID-19 cases in the region, while also considering their proximity to Indigenous communities.

Parks will remain closed through the upcoming May long weekend.

This initial plan to gradually reopen national parks and heritage sites in the coming weeks will come with the implementation of new public health measures to protect visitors, as Trudeau said "getting fresh air is important, but we all have to be responsible about it".
