Originally launched on April 9, 2020, CEBA is intended to support businesses by providing financing for their expenses that cannot be avoided or deferred as they take steps to safely navigate a period of shutdown, thereby helping to position businesses for successful relaunch when the economy reopens. The CEBA pre-screen tool is a quick tool for potential applicants to see if they may meet CEBA criteria. Please note this is not an official CEBA application.

New pre screening protocols for businesses need to be implemented. It is important to know that workplaces are responsible for implementing a COVID-19 screening procedure for any workers or essential visitors entering the work environment.
Screening should occur before or when a worker enters the workplace at the beginning of their day or shift, or when an essential visitor arrives. Other examples of screening tools are Ontario’s online COVID-19 self-assessment tool or WDGPH’s COVID-19 Screening Poster
