Emergency benefits: What each province is offering during the COVID-19 pandemic
Every Canadian who is losing income due to the pandemic is eligible to apply for the Canada Emergency Response Benefit, which offers $2,000 per month for up to four months. Applications are expected to open in April. The government has said that applications will be able to be made through CRA MyAccount or My Service Canada Account or by calling a toll-free number that has not yet been announced.

The IATSE is lobbying the government on behalf of entertainment workers who are losing work due to COVID-19. Although there are sectors that we don’t currently represent, as the union behind entertainment, we believe all workers have the right to be represented and so we are fighting for everyone, regardless of membership status.
In order to show the government the catastrophic effect this is having on our industry, we are compiling data to show the losses to entertainment workers.
This vlog has been created in part as a response to these difficult times connected to the COVID- 19 pandemic, but also to remind us all that we can all reach out and help others.
As we all know, the spread of COVID-19 has caused many Canadians to change their everyday lives to help “flatten the curve” to avoid a spike in cases that would overwhelm our health services. For some people, including some of you, that will mean having to self-isolate for two weeks, for others, it will mean working from home for the foreseeable future. Still others continue to have to go to their workplaces because of the essential nature of their work. Still others may face the prospect of job loss.
These are all difficult situations and everyone has their own response to stress. This is a good time to remember, however, that not only do you have resiliency skills and you can cope, as Mental Health First Aiders, you can also continue to support others.
