WASHINGTON — The Treasury Department has created a new office to supervise the disbursement of the billions of dollars in relief money authorized by Congress to combat the coronavirus-related recession. Officials said Wednesday that the goal is to streamline the process and ensure that all eligible groups have access to the aid. The Office of Recovery Programs will oversee the release of $420 billion in support from the $1.9 trillion package that President Joe Biden pushed through Congress last month, the Treasury said. That package included payments of up to $1,400 for individuals, extended emergency unemployment benefits, rental assistance, support for small businesses and state and local governments. The new office will also be responsible for supervising programs under the control of Treasury that were approved by Congress last year. In all, Congress has approved around $5 trillion in assistance to help millions of people who lost their jobs, and also businesses that were forced to close due to the pandemic. Deputy Treasury Secretary Wally Adeyemo said the goal of the new office was to “get relief distributed quickly and into the hands of those who need it most.“ The new office will be led by Jacob Leibenluft, who was designated as Treasury’s chief recovery officer. He will work closely with Gene Sperling, named by Biden as White House co-ordinator for the government’s rescue efforts. Treasury officials said the new office would oversee a number of relief programs dealing with such areas as state and local government support, emergency rental assistance, support for homeowners to meet mortgage payments, support for small businesses and loans for airlines and national security industries.

A study by an Ottawa think tank has found that women remain underrepresented in boardrooms of Canadian companies listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange, despite the 2015 introduction of disclosure requirements intended to boost their numbers.The Conference Board of Canada says that while there is some progress in the proportion of women on corporate boards, the pace of change remains slow.The nonprofit's study found that women only made up 15 per cent of Canadian boards in 2018 – an increase of just four percentage points from 2015, when seven provinces and two territories introduced so-called comply or explain requirements.The Conference Board study says the rules that ask publicly traded companies to disclose the number of women in key positions or explain why they have not met their goals have failed to accelerate women's entry into boardrooms since they were introduced.The study found more than half of the board seats that became vacant in 2018 went to men and about a quarter were left unfilled or eliminated.The research was done by compiling all public disclosure reporting data released by the Canadian Securities Administrators from 2015 to 2018, which included data from 589 companies.This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 14, 2021.This story was produced with the financial assistance of the Facebook and Canadian Press News Fellowship.
