The federal government has confirmed that all of Canada's COVID-19 recovery benefits will be extended by an additional four weeks, including the Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB).

In a notice shared on July 30, the Department of Finance Canada announced that the CRB, the Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit (CRCB) and the Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit (CRSB) would now be available until October 23, 2021.

The previous extension was set to end on September 25, 2021.*

The feds also confirmed that the maximum number of weeks the CRB can be claimed for has been extended by four additional weeks, to a total of 54 weeks.

It's worth noting that the extension will continue at a rate of $300 per week, rather than $500 per week.

The maximum number of weeks the CRCB can be claimed for is 42 weeks, while the CRSB can be claimed for up to four weeks.
