How to Apply

There are two ways to apply:

  • Online with CRA My Account - click to register

  • Over the phone with an automated phone service: 1-800-959-2019 please prepare your SIN and postal code 

  • You will need to apply and confirm your eligibility for the Canada Emergency Response Benefit every 4 weeks (to a maximum of 16 weeks) if your situation continues

Eligibility

The benefit will be available to workers:

  • Residing in Canada, who are at least 15 years old;

  • Who have stopped working because of COVID-19 or are eligible for Employment Insurance regular or sickness benefits:

  • Who had income of at least $5,000 in 2019 or in the 12 months prior to the date of their application; and

  • Who are or expect to be without employment or self-employment income for at least 14 consecutive days in the initial four-week period. For subsequent benefit periods, they expect to have no employment income.

  • Workers who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents – including temporary foreign workers and international students – may be eligible to receive the Benefit if they meet the other eligibility requirements.

How it works with EI Application

If you became eligible for EI regular or sickness benefits on March 15th or onward, your claim will be automatically processed through the Canada Emergency Response Benefit.

 

You do NOT need to reapply for the CERB. 

If you became eligible for EI before March 15th, it will be processed under regular EI benefits.

신청방법

신청방법은 온라인과 전화, 두가지 방법이있습니다 

  • Online with CRA My Account - click to register

  • 1-800-959-2019 전화시 SIN 이랑 postal code, 신청기간 을 준비해놓으세요 (신청기간은 일을 그만둔 날짜시작하여 4주에 기간을 말하면된다) 

  • 4주마다 받는 배내핏이니, 4주마다 개인상황에 따라 (아직 일복귀를 못했을경우) 재신청을해야한다     

 

해당조건 

  • 캐나다에 거주하며, 15세+ 인분들

  • 코비드 때문에 일을 못하는 분들 

  • 2019년 혹은 지난 12개월에 $5000 이상 소득이있었고, 4주기간 동안 최소한 연속하여 첫 14일은 소득이 없는 분들  

  • 시민권자/영주권자 아닌 워킹퍼밋인 분들은 다른 해당조건이 맞다면 받을수있는 가능성이있다. 신청해보는걸 추천한다 

 

EI를 이미 신청했다면 어떻게 되나요?

  • 3/15일후 벌써 EI신청하신분들은 바로 CERB 신청으로 넘어갈것이니, CERB 재신청을 안해도된다

  • 3/15일 전 신청을하였다면, 일반 EI해택을 받을것이다
