Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit (CRSB)

Weeks you can apply for

On this page

How eligibility periods work

Each Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit (CRSB) eligibility period is a specific 1-week period. When you apply, you will receive a $500 ($450 after taxes withheld) payment for that period.

The CRSB does not renew automatically. If your situation continues, you must apply for your second eligibility period separately. You may apply for any eligible 1-week period for up to 60 days after that period has ended.

You can apply for a maximum of 2 weeks between September 27, 2020 and September 25, 2021. The 2 weeks do not have to be taken consecutively.

If you become sick or have to self-isolate due to COVID-19 part way through a period, you can only apply for the period if you missed more than 50% of that work week. If you miss less than that, you need to wait to apply for the next eligibility period.

Period start and end dates

Each 1-week period starts on a Sunday and ends on the following Saturday. You may start applying on the first Monday after the 1-week period you’re applying for has ended.
