Since the COVID-19 pandemic began in March, Canada’s social safety net has expanded significantly. Now Canadians who have lost work or who are unable to work have more financial support than ever before. And so do businesses and corporations who are eligible to receive loans and public funding.

In this episode of the Vancouver COVID-19 Update, Iglika Ivanova, a senior economist at the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives makes a case for the social and economic benefits a lasting welfare state would bring.
