The Federal Government made changes to the CERB Program:

  • Individuals will be eligible for the program if they make $1,000 or less in each period of the program.  This is an attempt to allow people to do some work each period of the program and still get the benefit.
  • The program was made available to Seasonal Workers – if they cannot return to their work at their seasonal job do to COVID-19 they will be eligible to apply for the CERB program.
  • Individuals already on Employment Insurance (EI) that expired after January 1, 2020 will be allowed to apply for the CERB program.
