Canada's places of worship have a huge impact on the social fabric of the community/communities that they serve. Having to close because of the COVID-19 virus will have a very negative affect on society and on the personal health of each of their members. They serve communities in many ways other than just providing places to worship. They provide programs for all ages. They offer: breakfast programs, lunch programs, dinner programs, places of shelter, programs to help people grow to be better citizens of Canada, AND they are employers of many people who pay taxes to our various levels of government. It's time for our places of worship to receive some of these benefits that the government has offered for people, businesses, and other service-type organizations.

The Government has asked us all to isolate ourselves from one another. That means that places of worship are closed. Their people cannot gather for any reason. This makes it very difficult for adherents to continue to support their place of worship, even in this difficult time.  Some people will still be able to donate online because they are tech-savvy. However, there are many people in these houses of worship who are not tech-savvy or who do not participate regularly with online technology.  This greatly impacts, negatively, the regular stream of financial support our houses of worship would receive.

I call on governments of Canada at ALL levels to step up and offer financial assistance and relief to our houses of worship to provide equal treatment for all of Canada!
