My Service Canada Account


If you stopped working because of COVID-19, the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) may provide you with temporary income support. If you are not eligible for Employment Insurance, you can apply for the CERB through the Canada Revenue Agency using your existing My Service Canada Account. After you sign in to My Service Canada Account, look for the link to "Switch to Canada Revenue Agency" and then "I agree" on the Registration and authentication page. This transfers you to CRA My Account. If you don’t have an MSCA Account, just go to CRA directly.

Sign in with your province:
