The federal government is offering $14 billion to the provincial and territorial governments for measures to keep COVID-19 at bay.

How the money is distributed will depend on reaching what Trudeau calls a “safe-restart agreement” between the federal government and each province or territory.

“We’re talking about more personal protective equipment for healthcare workers on the frontlines so they can focus on saving lives instead of worrying about their safety,” Trudeau says. “We’re talking about making sure businesses have the PPE they need so that every Canadian is safe on the job no matter where in the country they go back to work.”
