The gouvernement du Québec intends to compensate 50% of the loss of the owners. They, who had to commit to absorb a loss of 25% by registering for this program, will thus receive a sum equivalent to 12.5% of the total cost of the rent in order to reduce their loss by half. For full details, see the press release (in French).
