Many people have lost their jobs or cannot work because they are ill or taking care of their children.
The government of Canada is offering a financial benefit, the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) to get money to people who have lost income due to the virus, but cannot apply for Employment Insurance (EI).
This money can be for someone who cannot work for the following reasons:
- You are ill with the virus.
- You are taking care of someone who is ill with the virus.
- You are taking care of your children while they are unable to attend school or daycare.
- You have been laid off because of the virus.
