SUPPORTING YOU BY EXPANDING CERB
Many Canadians are beginning to return to work, but some still face challenges due to COVID-19.
That is why our government is extending the Canada Emergency Response Benefit by eight weeks, to ensure Canadians have the help they need as they transition back to work.
As we begin to restart the economy, workers should be seeking work opportunities or returning to work, provided they are able and it is reasonable to do so.
That is why the government will also make changes to the CERB attestation, which will encourage Canadians on the benefit to find employment and consult the Job Bank website for new opportunities.
As we begin to take steps to safely restart our economy, we will continue to support Canadians to protect their health and economic well-being.
TIPS ON STAYING SAFE AND HEALTHY
Together, we can slow the spread of COVID-19 by making a conscious effort to keep a physical distance between each other.
