The federal government this week passed its $107-billion aid package to help Canadians struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic.

But will it come soon enough to help Canadians worrying about paying their April rent?

In an effort to contain the spread of the coronavirus, businesses of all sizes have been ordered to stay closed across Canada — and many of them aren't sure if they can weather the storm.

Our question this week: how has COVID-19 disrupted your job?

This Sunday, Checkup has assembled an expert panel to answer your questions about health and safety in the workplace, the state of your finances and more:

  • Infectious disease specialist Dr. Isaac Bogoch.
  • Economist Armine Yalnizyan.
