As bars and restaurants across the country navigate reopening with lower capacities, reduced hours and changing costs, we’re seeing the need for support fluctuate from week to week, region to region. To accommodate this evolving need, the Bartenders Benevolent Fund COVID-19 Support Fund has shifted to a national application process, with only one form to apply for support.
WHO CAN APPLY
Applications are open to all front of house and back of house hospitality professionals across Canada. If you have held employment in a licensed establishment on or after January 1, 2020 and have proof of employment and a valid SIN, you are eligible.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS
After submitting your application, our Funding Officer will confirm your identity, employment history and past funds awarded. Following confirmation, your application will have all identifying information removed and it will be shared to our selection panel for review.
