WHITEHORSE — Yukon's government has extended its COVID-19 relief program for businesses through to March.

Economic Development Minister Ranj Pillai says the program has also been updated to expand eligibility and help businesses with a broader list of fixed costs.

The government says in a statement territorial businesses that experience a deficit between Aug. 1 and March 31 are eligible to apply, including home-based businesses. 

The statement says the pandemic created unprecedented challenges for Yukon businesses.

Businesses that apply for help have to indicate they are operating at a deficit.

Other Yukon programs to help with the downturn caused by the pandemic include a paid sick-leave rebate and the Yukon Essential Workers Income Support Program.
