January 27, 2020 – Councillor Requests for Matching Funds for Those Affected by Coronavirus – 詹嘉礼议员请求政府为受影响人士提供配对捐款发表声明

Request for Matching Funds for Those Affected by Statement by Jim Karygiannis

The Chinese Canadian community has begun raising funds to assist loved ones in China obtain preventative medical devices, such as face masks and surgical gloves, which, presently, are either prohibitively expensive or impossible, at any price, to obtain. They have asked me to help them in this effort.

I have written to the Prime Minister requesting that the Government of Canada match, dollar-for-dollar, all monies raised to purchase these preventative medical devices. In the past, as other countries have faced the aftermath of internal crisis, the Canadian government has agreed to match the funds raised by Canadians to assist in the relief efforts.

 

I have also offered to assist the community to work with the Canada Revenue Agency to receive a one-time charity tax number. This will allow those who contribute to receive a charitable tax receipt.

I look forward to working with the community on this very important issue.

詹嘉礼议员请求政府为受影响人士提供配对捐款发表声明

 

加拿大华人社区已经开始筹集捐款,帮助在中国的亲人获得预防性医疗设备,如口罩和手术手套,目前,要么价格昂贵,要么无法以任何代价获得。他们请求我的帮忙。

我已经给总理写信要求加拿大政府进行一对一配对捐款,所有的捐款都用来买这些医疗预防设备。过去,其他国家面临内部危机时,加拿大政府也同意配对捐款,以协助救灾工作。

我还协助社区与加拿大税务局合作,以获得一次性慈善税务号码。这可以让捐款人士收到退税收据。

我期待着与社区就这个非常重要的事宜合作。
