The previously announced Emergency Care Benefit and Emergency Support Benefit have now been merged to be called the "CERB" (Canada Emergency Response Benefit).

How much can I get? 

$2,000 a month for up to four months for workers who lose their income as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Who is eligible? 

  • Canadians who have lost their job, are sick, quarantined, or taking care of someone who is sick with COVID-19, as well as working parents who must stay home without pay to care for children who are sick or at home because of school and daycare closures

  • Wage earners, as well as contract workers and self-employed individuals who would not otherwise be eligible for Employment Insurance (EI)workers who are still employed, but are not receiving income because of disruptions to their work situation due to COVID-19, 

  • Those who are already receiving EI regular and sickness benefits would continue to receive their benefits and should not apply to the CERB

How can I apply? 

A portal will be open early April where applications can be done online. Details to be announced. Canadians would begin to receive their CERB payments within 10 days of application
