More than 78K Manitobans to receive money from Risk Recognition Program

By | July 29, 2020

WINNIPEG — Premier Brian Pallister announced that 78,442 Manitobans will receive money from the Risk Recognition Program.

Pallister made the announcement on Wednesday morning.

The $120 million program was set up to show appreciation to front-line workers during the pandemic.

Pallister said each person is eligible for $1,530, but the money is taxable, so the province has applied a 10 per cent withholding tax to the Canada Revenue Agency.

With the tax being deducted, each person will receive $1,377 and will be notified by email. The money will be deposited in their account through a direct deposit.

This is a developing story. More details to come.
