President Emmanuel Macron has confirmed that French museums and restaurant terraces will be able to reopen from mid-May after nearly seven months' closure beginning the Covid-19 second wave. Macron held talks with Prime Minister Jean Castex and Health Minister Olivier Véran on Thursday at the Elysée with the aim of defining the return of the businesses that have been closed during another attempt to stem the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.“From the first phase of reopening, culture will be there,” said Macron, citing museums as the first venues to reopen. “If after two or three weeks it is going well, we can move on to phase two and so on.”Though the exact details of the opening hours and health protocols have not been specified, the move to open terraces – responsible for around 30 percent of a bar’s turnover – will offer a glimpse of salvation.Relief for restaurateurs"We are delighted that the date of mid-May is confirmed for the opening of the terraces," said Franck Trouet, a spokesman for the GNI union of independent hotels and restaurants. "It was good for morale. We are able to start preparing.”Last summer following the emergence from the first national lockdown, scores of cafes, bars and customers failed to observe the rules on social distancing.Subsequent shutdowns have highlighted the need for vigilance, say ministers.Cautious reopeningAgnès Pannier-Runacher, the minister for industry told RMC: “The reopening will be progressive and worked profession by profession.”It is understood that between 15 and 28 May, terraces can start reopening and hotel guests will be allowed to have breakfast, lunch and dinner in the dining room.During a second phase between 29 May and 11 June, restaurants will be able to offer limited inside dining. Bars and cafes will also be able to serve a set number of customers inside.From 12 June, a full reopening is planned."We need to find the right balance, so that everyone's health is guaranteed and so that companies can resume activity allowing them to pay their suppliers and employees,” added Trouet.

OTTAWA — The Liberals will look to thread an economic needle with Monday's budget, while dealing with a minority Parliament where the document's defeat would topple the government. It has been more than two years — and two throne speeches — since the Liberals delivered a federal budget, having not done so last year due to what the government said was the economic uncertainty COVID-19 had created. The Liberals have promised to lay out a plan to green the economy, create a national child-care system and help displaced workers improve their skills. Provinces will be looking for more health-care cash, small businesses for an extension of emergency aid, and credit-rating agencies for certainty that historic deficits and debts will be tamed over time. Elliot Hughes, a one-time adviser to former finance minister Bill Morneau, says how the government has fuelled expectations sets up quite the day in terms of policy and spending the budget will lay out.

The latest news on COVID-19 developments in Canada (all times Eastern): --- 12:30 p.m. The federal government has secured eight million additional doses of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine, to be delivered by mid-summer. Procurement Minister Anita Anand says the first additional four million shots will arrive in May, followed by two million in June and another two million in July. Anand said the company will also move another 400,000 doses from the third quarter into June. Canada's initial shipment of approximately 300,000 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine will arrive during the week of April 27, Anand said, to be delivered to the provinces at the beginning of May. --- 11:11 a.m. Quebec is reporting 1,527 new COVID-19 cases today and seven more deaths attributed to the novel coronavirus, including one in the past 24 hours. Health officials say hospitalizations rose by three, to 664, and 167 people were in intensive care, a rise of eight. The province says it administered 74,927 vaccine doses on Thursday, a single-day record. Quebec has reported a total of 334,071 COVID-19 infections and 10,785 deaths linked to the virus. --- 11:05 a.m. Procurement Minister Anita Anand says Canada's incoming vaccine supply from Moderna will be slashed in half through the rest of April. Anand says in a statement that Moderna will ship 650,000 doses of its vaccine to Canada by the end of the month, instead of the expected 1.2 million. Moderna said the limited supply is due to a "slower than anticipated ramp up" of its production capacity. Anand says the company also told Canada that one to two million doses of the 12.3 million scheduled for delivery in the second quarter may be delayed until the third quarter. Anand adds the federal government will continue to press Moderna to fulfill its commitments. --- 10:50 a.m. Police in a city east of Montreal say they are investigating an alleged attempt to illegally gain access to COVID-19 vaccines at a pharmacy. Repentigny, Que., police say they were told of an incident at a Jean Coutu pharmacy that took place on April 11 where someone allegedly impersonated a vaccine inspector. Several media reports cite an internal Jean Coutu memo saying a man presented himself to one of the company’s pharmacies pretending to be a security firm representative and asking to inspect the vaccines. His attempt was rebuffed by staff. A spokeswoman for Groupe Jean Coutu declined to comment and Repentigny police say they took statements and are reviewing surveillance footage. --- 10:40 a.m. Ontario is reporting 4,812 new cases of COVID-19 today, reaching a new peak for a second day in a row. It's also reporting 25 more deaths related to the virus. The province could announce more public health measures today in an effort to rein in surging infections. Yesterday's tally also marked a new record, at 4,736 cases. --- 10:05 a.m. Nunavut is announcing 12 new cases of COVID-19 today, all in Iqaluit. On April 14, the city of about 8,000 people announced its first case since the pandemic began. The city is under a strict lockdown, with all non-essential businesses, government offices and schools closed. There are 13 active cases of COVID-19 in the territory, all in Iqaluit. --- 9:30 a.m The Canadian Medical Association is calling for "extraordinary" measures to address the COVID-19 crisis unfolding in several provinces. The CMA says it wants the federal government to consider re-prioritizing its vaccine distribution strategy to focus on urgent areas instead of distributing to provinces on a per-capita basis. The organization also says provinces should be sharing their health-care resources with areas that are especially hard-hit, including Ontario and Quebec, where intensive care capacity is overwhelmed. The CMA says further restrictions "must also be considered" in provinces experiencing rapid rates of COVID-19 transmission. --- This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 16, 2021.

OTTAWA, April 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) is pleased to announce that applications for the Supportive Care Assistant Program, funded by the Government of Canada’s Sectoral Initiatives Program, are now open. This new work integrated training program was developed to quickly address the acute labour shortages in the long-term care sector and is offered at no charge by select colleges and institutes across Canada. The program includes six-weeks of online training followed by a four-month paid work placement. Students are given the opportunity to discover a new career and make a difference in their community while earning a wage. After completing the necessary coursework, students will be placed in a long-term or home care setting and perform non-clinical activities to support clients and the health-care team. In addition to providing immediate support to those living and working in long-term care, the program includes a laddering process for participants to up-skill. This offers a career pathway to become fully certified personal care providers (also called personal support workers, health care aides and other titles), ensuring long-term benefits to both students and the sector. The curriculum and course content for the program were created in collaboration with colleges and institutes from across the country who shared expertise and resources. Over the next year, up to 2,600 assistants will be trained nationally thanks to the Supportive Care Assistant Program. Employers will also receive a wage subsidy of $5,000 per student. The program is part of CICan’s Building Capacity in Long-term Care project. Interested students can visit careerlauncher.ca/care for more information and to apply. Quotes “CICan’s member colleges and institutes have risen to the occasion to quickly develop a national training program that is engaging and flexible. The Supportive Care Assistant Program is just one example of how colleges and institutes are helping displaced workers develop skills for in-demand careers through programs that meet the needs of students, employers, and their communities.” Denise Amyot, President and CEO of Colleges and Institutes Canada “The COVID-19 pandemic has shown the crucial role that workers in the supportive care sector play in the well-being of our loved ones. It has also highlighted the critical need for more certified workers in the field. The Supportive Care Assistant Program is an innovative way to offer people training and job experience with a pathway to become a fully certified supportive care worker. By listening to and working with industry and union partners, this project will not only help workers and employers but will also make the supportive care sector more resilient in the future.” Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Disability Inclusion About Colleges and Institutes Canada Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) is the voice of Canada’s publicly-supported colleges, institutes, cegeps and polytechnics, and an international leader in education for employment with ongoing programs in over 25 countries.

The Oscar isn’t the only one celebrating its 93rd trip around the sun at the Academy Awards ceremony this year. The shorts category features two documentaries, “ A Concerto is a Conversation ” and “ Colette,” about fellow nonagenarians who have led extraordinary and extraordinarily different lives. One, Horace Bowers, is a 93-year-old Black man born in the Jim Crow South who became a successful business owner in California and the grandfather of a prominent composer. The other, Colette Marin-Catherine, is a French woman who was part of the resistance during World War II. She turns 93 on April 25, the day of the ceremony. Neither ever dreamed that they would have any connection to the movies at all, let alone Hollywood’s greatest honour. “I do think it’s an amazing coincidence and sort of feels fateful that both Horace and Collette are not only very close to the same age but that the Oscars itself was born at almost the exact same time as they came into the world and that almost a century would pass before their stars aligned,” said Ben Proudfoot, the co-director of “A Concerto is a Conversation." “It’s like a Halley’s Comet that all these threads would come together at this exact moment. I think it’s pretty special.” Proudfoot co-directed “A Concerto is a Conversation” with Horace Bowers’ grandson Kris Bowers, an accomplished composer and pianist whose Hollywood credits include “When They See Us,” “Green Book,” “Bridgerton” and the upcoming “Space Jam” sequel. Kris Bowers looked to his grandfather’s wild decision to hitchhike out of Florida as the reason he’s now performing his own violin concerto at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Born in Bascom Florida, Horace Bowers remembers distinctly a peer of his calling his father “boy” when he was 6 or 7 and knowing at that moment that he had to leave. Almost by accident, Bowers found his way to Los Angeles where he saved his money and bought a dry-cleaning business. Recently, a stretch of the South Los Angeles corridor where he founded his business was designated the Bowers Retail Square. At the same time Bowers was dreaming of escaping the South, Marin-Catherine was an ocean away in the Normandy region and war was breaking out around her. She was just 10 years old when the Germans invaded France. Soon after, she and her family joined the French Resistance. Being so young, all she was asked to do at the beginning was to write down the registration numbers of passing trucks. Later, she and her mother assisted at the hospital. In 1943, her older brother Jean-Pierre was arrested as a political prisoner and taken to the Mittelbau-Dora concentration camp near Nordhausen, Germany, where he would die three weeks before it was liberated. In the emotional 25-minute film from director Anthony Giacchino, Marin-Catherine sets foot in Germany for the first time since before World War II to visit the concentration camp where her brother died in 1945. She’s accompanied by then-17-year-old Lucie Fouble, an aspiring historian researching French deportees to Dora during the war. Speaking through the film's co-producer Alice Doyard, who translated, Marin-Catherine said her connection to Fouble continues to this day. Both Bowers and Marin-Catherine have found the experience of being in films a little overwhelming and both did it for family. Bowers remembers being a little confused about why Proudfoot and his grandson wanted to film him demonstrating how to press clothes, but he obliged. “I told them, as long as I can help you, I’ll stay here all you want,” Bowers said. “If I’m going to help him to succeed, then that’s what I want.” Marin-Catherine, similarly, considers “Colette” to be a tribute to her brother. She thinks of herself as a very small part of the endeavour even though it bears her name. And while both films are competing in the same category, no one is feeling especially competitive. “We’re the short documentary category. I’m sure that all the filmmakers behind these films are most of all interested in raising what their story is about on an international stage. We want to support each other,” Proudfoot said. “Whoever wins, we will all be cheering because it’s a win for the entire short documentary community.” Bowers, who has had a difficult year undergoing cancer treatments, is especially looking forward to the ceremony. Marin-Catherine, meanwhile, will be watching from home. “The academy members have to take advantage of this amazing opportunity to celebrate someone who’s almost the same age as the academy,” Marin-Catherine said. “It will be rarer and rarer.” If “Colette” wins, she said, she’ll have two pieces of chocolate that night instead of one. — Follow AP Film Writer Lindsey Bahr on Twitter: www.twitter.com/ldbahr Lindsey Bahr, The Associated Press

President orders flags at half staff as White House renews urgent call to Congress on critical gun reform
OTTAWA — The federal government is coming under pressure to extend this month's tax-filing deadline, much like it did last year during the first wave of COVID-19. The Opposition Conservatives are asking the Liberals to give a waiver until the end of June given the circumstances the country finds itself in. Quebec on Thursday announced it was pushing back the filing deadline until the end of May and waiving charging interest on balances owing through the same month. Speaking in question period, the revenue minister's parliamentary secretary says the government understands that this tax season is a stressful one for Canadians. Francesco Sorbara also says he encourages all Canadians to file their returns on time so that there isn't any interruption to benefits. Conservative critic Philip Lawrence didn't appear impressed with the answer, saying at one point, "I'll take that as a no." In a statement, Lawrence said the last thing Canadians want to deal with right now is the headache and financial stress of filing taxes. "Let's give Canadians some breathing room and much-needed compassion," he said. "The simple fact is that Ottawa can wait." The Liberals extended the tax-filing deadline last year from April 30 to June 1 during the first wave of COVID-19, and put off payment of any balances owing until September to ease cash-flow concerns for households. A professional organization representing chartered accountants, CPA Canada, has been asking the Canada Revenue Agency for a similar reprieve over the last few days. The situation is particularly concerning in Ontario where a stay-at-home order will be in effect beyond the current April 30 filing deadline. On its website, the association writes to its members that it hopes the federal government will follow Quebec's lead. This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 16, 2021.
