Kelowna business owner says wage subsidy window misses mark

Wage subsidy may not help

A Kelowna small business owner believes he has found a hole in the federal government’s pandemic aid package that could have disastrous results.

Sebastiaan Pynappels, who owns Kelowna Cell Repair, says a mistake was made in calculating how businesses will qualify for the 75% wage subsidy for employees.

“I think they maybe brought it out too fast and need to change it on the fly, or there are going to be a lot of problems for small businesses,” Pynappels said Tuesday.
