CANADA EMERGENCY RESPONSE BENEFIT
The CERB pays a monthly $2,000 payment to workers who wouldn’t otherwise be eligible for EI.

That includes wage earners, contract workers, or self-employed individuals; those who’ve had to stay home without pay to self-isolate or care for loved ones; and anyone else who hasn’t been permanently laid off, but has stopped receiving pay-cheques.

Any Canadian who has stopped working for a 14-day period due to Covid-19 can qualify for the new benefit, which cover a period of up to 16 weeks.

Applications open online and by phone on Monday, April 6, with payments to arrive within five days for direct deposits and within 10 days for cheques by mail.
