The Canada Emergency Response Benefit has drastically evolved since its initial launch back in March. ย Employment Insurance is no longer the program you apply for if you cannot work due to COVID 19. ย EI ย has been replaced by Canada Emergency Response Benefit, commonly known as CERB. ย 

This benefit is applicable for both employees and those who are self-employed and never having paid into Employment Insurance. ย The criteria to be eligible for the Canada Emergency Response Benefit has evolved over several weeks. ย 

The government of Canada has expanded and changes who is can be paid to and what the criteria is. ย Huge advancements were made for Canadians on April 15 was the inclusion of Seasonal workers as well as those whose EI benefits have run out since the start of 2020. ย  Also, now allowing people to earn up to $1,000 month and still be able to qualify for the benefit. ย
