Canada will give 2k a month to people who’ve lost their jobs because of COVID-19

“The Canada Emergency Response Benefit will provide $2,000 a month for the next four months for workers who lose their income as a result of COVID-19,” he said.

“This will replace the two benefits we announced last week — the Emergency Care Benefit and Emergency Support Benefit — in order to streamline the process. Like I said from the start, we will adapt our approach whenever needed.”

This new benefit would cover 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.
