Senior Editor

The prime minister is reminding Canadians that COVID-19 benefits in Canada are still available if you need support during the ongoing pandemic.

In a series of tweets on April 2, he urged people to stay at home over the long weekend, noting that rising COVID-19 cases across the country means “we’re all going to have to do things differently again this year.”

He went on to acknowledge that new restrictions would be coming back into place in some regions and reminded Canadians that financial support was available if it was needed.

“... Know that we’re going to continue to be here for you - and that there are programs available to help you and your business,” he explained, sharing a link to a Government of Canada web page with details about Canada’s recovery benefits.

This comes just a few weeks after the feds extended COVID-19 benefits and Employment Insurance (EI) so that Canadians can get paid for even longer.
