Financial support for sports organizations during COVID-19

14 April 2020


Sports organizations and clubs across Canada are grappling with funding and employment issues in the wake of COVID-19.

National and regional not-for-profit sports programs and clubs are facing the loss of programming and a decline in revenues during a pandemic that has prompted the closure of facilities nation-wide. Along with Anne Merklinger from Own the Podium, lawyers from Gowling WLG discuss relevant short- and long-term financial programs and supports that will enable sports organizations to navigate through these challenging times.
