Comments in the corporate report note that, “Regulations implemented by the Ontario Government under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act and subsequently the Reopening Ontario (A Flexible Response to Covid -19) Act 2020, have at various times strictly limited, or required the closure of various business types. These actions also had a significant impact on businesses who, while not specifically identified in the regulations, have suffered due to the subsequent general slowing of the economy.”
