About CERB

The CERB, or Canada Emergency Response Benefit, is the financial package created by the federal government that eligible Canadians can apply for if they're affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Passed on March 25, 2020, the $107-billion package allows some out-of-work Canadians to receive $2,000 a month for four months. Those applying for the benefit must meet certain requirements.
