Applications for the Canadian Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) and the Ontario Benefit for Parents are now open
For our many families who are now off work due to COVID-19, the Canadian Emergency Response Benefit Applications are now open. They have staggered the application for this week, based on your birth-date. The link to applications is at https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/benefits/apply-for-cerb-with-cra.html?fbclid=IwAR24mp6cQU9VnT1lDYHwUSyPrLTYG33FinsNg6bXdKmWtGi004V5pKcvqT4 .
As you may know the CERB benefit application is live today, but don't forget also that the Ontario benefit for parents is open for applications today. You must have a child under 12, for $200/child, and children who have a special need, and who are under 21 will qualify for $250. It applies to public school, private school and home-schooled kids. It is one application per kid, so you fill it out all again per kid . https://www.ontario.ca/page/get-support-families?fbclid=IwAR3blFSnOZXCeLIjupmVRe2aSHGh-tY-SfU5USnIuN-y1CuBiD4vslxQr3k
