Federal Government Repackages EI Support Benefits

On March 25, 2020 Prime Minister Trudeau announced changes to the emergency response benefit package. This new announcement will be combining two previously announced financial benefits into one and will provide workers who have lost their jobs as a result of COVID-19 $2000 a month for the next four months. This will replace the emergency care and emergency support benefits announced last week. The portal for applications is expected to be up and running April 6th. The Chamber will provide further information once available.
