Helping Canadians find out what emergency financial assistance they're eligible for.

CovAid

There are so many different kinds of help and resources available for those suffering financial hardship because of COVID-19 and the social distancing measures we are taking to slow down its spread. But how do you navigate it all? These programs are rolling out so fast, and coming from so many different places, figuring out what is available and how to reach it can be really confusing. We want to help!
We are a group of students, professors and alumni from Thompson Rivers University's, Faculty of Law. We are developing questionnaire apps that will easily help you find out what financial assistance you might be eligible for. Our apps will also give you a customized report about other programs you might be interested in, based on your specific situation (for example, programs for students if you're a student, programs for freelancers if you're a freelancer, etc.).
The information we are giving is not legal advice, just information to help guide you through all the confusing stuff out there.
