As COVID 19 hit Canada over the past weeks and many non-essential businesses began laying off employees, there has been much miscommunication from the government, both federally and provincially, that lead both homeowners and tenants to believe that mortgages are being “forgiven.” This is just not correct.  Period.  There is ZERO
