Governments don't have limitless resources, so a long-term support for charities is needed as the pandemic drags on. 

"Cardus, a faith-based think-tank in Ottawa, said COVID-19 restrictions haven’t affected all Canadians equally and it estimates the wealthiest 40 per cent of Canadians, through lower expenses and less discretionary spending during the lockdown, have collectively amassed $5.3 billion."

"Cardus reminds Canadians that charities, artists and arts organizations that have been particularly hard-hit by the pandemic would benefit from some of those savings, particularly during a time when more-disadvantaged Canadians will rely on those charities."
