Fonds de solidarité FTQ deferral
The Fonds de solidarité FTQ is offering all its portfolio companies a six-month deferral of loan interest and principal payments.
Businesses that avail themselves of the deferral offer are no longer obligated to make principal and/or interest payments (at the company’s option), which were payable from the date of acceptance of the moratorium and for six months thereafter.
This measure is meant to ease the short-term financial pressures faced by businesses in its network, which includes the Fonds régionaux de solidarité FTQ. In the case of the Fonds locaux de solidarité FTQ, this temporary relief will be implemented in partnership with the RCMs and other FLS manager organizations.

As COVID-19 continues its devastating spread across Italy, a heartbreaking reality is setting in. The human and economic impact of this pandemic is being felt across the country, and the needs are great – especially for the most vulnerable.
We are fighting hard against this pandemic, but we also need your help!
This is why the Embassy of Italy in Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Red Cross and with the support of the Italian Chambers of Commerce in Canada, has launched a fundraising campaign to support the Italian Red Cross’s COVID-19 response activities.
The funds raised will help the most vulnerable in Italy make it through these uncertain times.
