Updates and Facts on CERB

Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) Update: Many Canadian residents were left out under the initial CERB eligibility rules, which said that in order to qualify for CERB,

an individual must have lost all income for 14 consecutive days in the first month, followed by zero income for subsequent months.

these initial rules created gaps that did not address many students whose summer job plans fell through, and people who are working reduced but regular hours.

 

CERB will be expanded to include workers impacted by COVID-19 such as students and people working reduced hours.

 

Changes are also promised so that essential workers, such as those working in long-term care facilities, aren't financially disadvantaged by working instead of collecting CERB.

Virtual Event Series

Online Support for New Canadians

'New Canadians' are organizing a special virtual event series - which they are calling Café New Canadians - to give expert tips, information & resources. They have got lots to share – from boosting productivity when working from home to up-skilling for that dream job, acing video interviews to virtual networking 101 & exploring Canada as a newcomer while staying indoors. The free & casual virtual events are also an opportunity to ask any questions newcomers might have regarding career, settlement, or other areas.

 

They have planned virtual chats every Tuesday, Thursday & Saturdays. In addition to Zoom, the sessions will be live streamed to YouTube.
