Emergency funding will help charities assist the growing number of people affected by pandemic, reports CBC.

Brian Dijkema, Cardus Vice President of External Affairs, tells CBC that a dollar-for-dollar matching program would be more equitable and easier to administer. 

"As the government crafts the next stages of support for the most vulnerable in Canada, it should pursue a matching model that leverages its financial capacity to encourage all Canadians to support their fellow citizens," he said.
