Finance Minister Bill Morneau is expected to soon announce the federal government’s plan to help workers affected by COVID-19.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Monday that the details of the spending package would arrive imminently, with measures rolling out in the coming days to buffer the economy from the sudden shock of the novel coronavirus pandemic.

He also suggested that more measures may have to be taken in the long term to help restore consumer and business confidence.

Trudeau is scheduled to address Canadians from Rideau Cottage in Ottawa at 11:30 a.m. ET on Tuesday to provide an update on the government’s response to the pandemic.
