New EI Programs for Covid-19 Recovery Benefits

27 Sep New EI Programs for Covid-19 Recovery Benefits

The Federal government has formed 3 new programs to aid those affected by Covid-19
that are not eligible for traditional EI.

Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB)

The Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB) gives income support to employed and self-employed individuals who are directly affected by COVID-19 and are not entitled to Employment Insurance (EI) benefits. The CRB is administered by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

  • If you are eligible for the CRB, you can receive $1,000 ($900 after taxes withheld) for a 2-week period.
  • If your situation continues past 2 weeks, you will need to apply again. You may apply up to a total of 13 eligibility periods (26 weeks) between September 27, 2020 and September 25, 2021.
Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit (CRSB)

The Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit (CRSB) gives income support to employed and self-employed individuals who are unable to work because they are sick or need to self-isolate due to COVID-19, or have an underlying health condition that puts them at greater risk of getting COVID-19. The CRSB is administered by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

  • If you are eligible for the CRSB, you can receive $500 ($450 after taxes withheld) for a 1-week period.
  • If your situation continues past 1 week, you will need to apply again. You may apply up to a total of 2 weeks between September 27, 2020, and September 25, 2021.
Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit (CRCB)

The Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit (CRCB) gives income support to employed and self-employed individuals who are unable to work because they must care for their child under 12 years old or a family member who needs supervised care. This applies if their school, regular program or facility is closed or unavailable to them due to COVID-19, or because they are sick, self-isolating, or at risk of serious health complications due to COVID-19. The CRCB is administered by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

  • If you are eligible for the CRCB, your household can receive $500 ($450 after taxes withheld) for each 1-week period.
  • If your situation continues past 1 week, you will need to apply again. You may apply up to a total of 26 weeks between September 27, 2020, and September 25, 2021.
