COVID-19 Updates

This year has been nothing if it hasn’t been challenging. But Ontario small businesses have demonstrated their grit and resiliency. We are beginning to find a new normal as we continue to balance economic and public health concerns. It is important to rely on accurate information when making informed decisions critical to your family and business. 

At BizWize we are committed to serving and supporting our clients and community during this time. Economic supports and programs available to businesses and individuals are consistently evolving and eligibility rules can be extensive and complex. To support our clients, we have created free Bulletins outlining the details of available Financial Assistance Programs that we hope you will find useful. Our expanded services now include Loan and Subsidy Application Assistance including CEBA, TWS, CEWS and CERS. 

It’s business as usual for all our regularly offered services. Please see our Services page for more detail. 

If you have any questions or concerns, or wish to engage any of our services, please Contact Us at 289-221-2650 or at

With unwavering support,
