Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit (CRSB)

How much you can get

How much you receive per period

The Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit (CRSB) provides a payment of $500 (before taxes withheld) for each 1-week period you apply for. After the CRA withholds 10% tax at source, the actual payment you get is $450 per 1-week period.

Your payment amount will be the same for each period you’ve applied for, even if you worked for part of the week. To be eligible, you must have missed more than 50% of your work week.

If you’re eligible, you may apply up to a maximum of 6 weeks between September 27, 2020 and May 7, 2022.

You cannot apply for periods that are closed.

How we calculate your payment

  • $500 (CRSB gross amount)
  • minus   $50 (10% tax withheld at source)
  • equals $450 (amount you receive per period)
