Coronavirus (COVID-19): Financial assistance for Canadians, Temporary residents and Refugees

Canada is helping people who are facing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you live in Canada, even temporarily, there may be support for you.

What is a Canadian child benefit and how to apply for it?

What is Employment Insurance and Canada Recovery Benefit?

The new recovery benefits are available between September 27, 2020, and September 25, 2021.

To give workers seeking employment the support they need to get back on their feet, the government has made changes to the Employment Insurance (EI) program.

EI is now available to more workers, including those who would not have qualified for EI in the past, extending coverage to more than 400,000 people. Anyone receiving EI is eligible for a taxable benefit of at least $500 per week, or $300 per week for extended parental benefits, and regular benefits are accessible for up to 50 weeks.
