REMOTE HELP MINISTRY
In Galatians 6:2, we're told "Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ." We know COVID-19 is putting a lot of extra burden on many of us—but it's also stirring up more desire to help one another. We want to work together to share the load, in order to glorify Jesus.
Many of you have been already been asking how you can serve during this unique and trying season. Our response has been to start a new "Remote Help Ministry" that will help us meet one another's needs while doing our part to preserve social distancing and flatten the curve.

GOVERNMENT FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE GUIDE
The federal, provincial, and municipal governments have assembled quite a few financial assistance programs, as have several Crown corporations. If you are in need of financial assistance during this time, you should apply for all the benefits you're eligible for.*
This document is our humble effort to list all the available sources of financial assistance to residents of the Greater Vancouver Area. We've included a brief description of each benefit so you can better discern which ones you are most likely eligible for, and there are links so you can find application forms easily.
Questions about specific benefits should be directed to whichever government branch is providing the benefit in question—but if you would like help navigating our document, we would be happy to get someone to reach out to you. Just let us know at email@example.com
, and we'll give you a call back.
***While we've done our best to ensure accuracy, things are changing all the time, and we can't guarantee that this document will be completely up to date at any given time. We also cannot guarantee that you will receive every benefit you apply for—that's up to each benefit provider to decide, not us.
