How do I apply for a COVID-19 extension? Should I just check off all boxes?
Please ONLY check off the boxes for the COVID-19 extension(s) you require.
If you already have an agreement that meets the shown in Ontario requirement – such as a broadcast license, then you don’t need to apply for the extension of the shown in Ontario requirement on page two.
If you require more time to submit an agreement that demonstrates the shown in Ontario requirement (and you meet the parameters for this COVID-19 exemption), then please only check this box. Administratively we will extend the deadline to issue the Certificate and Letter of Confirmation. If this is the only outstanding item, applicants should not check off the extension for application deadline.
Likewise, if you have already applied for a Certificate of Eligibility and Letter of Confirmation within 42 months after the first taxation year that ends after the start of principal photography, then you have already met the application deadline and you do not need to apply for the COVID-19 extension of the application deadline on page two.
Please see section 2.03 B of the OFTTC Guidelines for further clarification on how to complete the Ontario Creates Waiver & COVID Statement form for applicable years when requesting the COVID-19 extension for application deadline.
