On June 11, 2021, Interim-CEO Nicole Bellefleur sent a letter to Member of Parliament Sean Casey regarding concerns with amendments to the Canada Emergency Wage and Rent Subsidies (CEWS and CERS). This was after MP Casey had participated in two federal budget Q&A sessions with Min. Ahmed Hussen and MP Sean Fraser.

In the letter, she asks MP Casey to work towards ensuring the federal government maintains in place the same levels of wage and rent subsidy supports as it did in 2020, until at least the end of September 2021.
