PM announces CERB extended through August

The eight week extension of the program will provide much-needed relief to those who lost their jobs as a result of the pandemic.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Tuesday that the Canadian Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) will be extended eight weeks.

Originally slated for 16 weeks, Canadians who have experienced job loss as a result of the COIVD-19 pandemic and who received the benefit from the start of the program will continue to receive up to $500 per week through the end of August.

The program's budget of $60 Billion may have to be increased as three quarters of the funds have already been provided to Canadians. Ottawa is hoping that fewer people take advantage of the extension now that the economy, especially the service sector, is beginning to reopen.
