Need help coping with the financial impact of COVID-19? Here’s how the federal government intends to support Canadians through this pandemic.*
For families with kids, who may need extra support
The Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit (CRCB) offers $500 per week for up to 26 weeks per household. This benefit applies to workers who:
- can’t work for at least 50% of the week because they must care for a child under the age of 12 or family member because schools, day-cares or care facilities are closed due to COVID-19; or
- have a child or family member who’s sick, needs to quarantine or is at high risk of serious health implications due to COVID-19.
