What you need to know about the Canada emergency response benefit application

The CERB is a taxable benefit for Canadians that have lost their income as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic; it combines the Emergency Care Benefit and Emergency Support Benefit that Trudeau previously announced into one package. 

If you’ve lost your job or are sick, quarantined, or taking care of someone who is sick with COVID-19, then you’re eligible for CERB.

The benefits are also available for working parents who must stay home without pay to care for children, contract workers, and self-employed individuals who are not eligible for EI.

If you’re employed but currently not receiving income due to work disruptions because of COVID-19, you are also eligible for CERB.
