Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) with CRA

CERB extended by 8 weeks

The CERB has been extended. It is now available to those who are eligible for a maximum of 6 eligibility periods (or 24 weeks total).

The Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) gives financial support to employed and self-employed Canadians who are directly affected by COVID-19.

If you are eligible, you can receive $2,000 for a 4-week period (the same as $500 a week).

If your situation continues past 4 weeks, you will need to apply for the CERB again. You may re-apply for up to a total of 24 weeks.
