Justin Trudeau's government is considering making the $2,000 allowance granted to all Canadians who are struggling as a result of coronavirus entirely non taxable, according to the Le Journal De Montreal.

Initially, Trudeau announced that the $2,000 amount would be included as income in the tax report next year, however Ottawa may change their minds on this.

Having said this, this tax-free clause will only be granted to those who were deprived on income as a result of the coronavirus troubles, and those who have earned at least $5,000 last year.

Canadians will be able to register for this benefit in April, and the cheques will arrive ten days after registration.
