Canadian students are finally getting some help from the government. However, it seems like there will be a catch. The Canada Emergency Student Benefit will be tied to looking for a job.\nA report from CBC News states that students receiving the benefit, which amounts to $1250 a month, will now have to vouch that they are also looking for work.\nThe change to the Parliamentary Bill, which was sent to the Senate on April 29, was introduced by members of the Conservative Party.\nAs part of this new measure, the government will also provide financial incentives and support through job postings. The motion states that assistance will be given in a way that "meets their objective while encouraging employment in all circumstances," according to CBC News.\nConservative leader Andrew Scheer tweeted about the need for these measures to be built into federal aid programs, writing "Businesses and charities are struggling to find workers. Gov't programs should be matching Canadians with available jobs, not just providing billions in aid. Our proposal gives students an opportunity to earn an income and contribute to the COVID-19 response effort."\nThe bill was also amended in another major way with a proposal from members of the NDP.\nOne way to ensure students have income during this crisis and opportunities to gain meaningful work experience is to temporarily increase Canada Summer Jobs program funding. We have heard from organizations across the country that want to hire but can’t access the program. 1/3— Andrew Scheer (@AndrewScheer) April 28, 2020\nStudents who have disabilities or are caring for dependents will now receive an additional $750 a month, bringing their total to $2000, the same as the Canada Emergency Response Benefit.\nMiranda, a single mother & student, says she can’t get childcare or work due to #COVID19Because she's a student, the government wants to cut the help she can get by $250/monthThis while they continue to help companies who dodge their taxesThat is the choice the PM is making— Jagmeet Singh (@theJagmeetSingh) April 29, 2020\n"Canada's students face a unique set of challenges, and the legislation introduced today brings us one big step closer to helping them," Minister of Employment Carla Qualtrough said in a statement.\n"The Canada Emergency Student Benefit would help approximately one million eligible students pay their bills and stay connected to the labour market."\nThe government is also offering up to $5000 toward tutition payments for students who perform volunteer work through the Canada Student Services Grant.
