Those who have been claiming the money since mid-March will be coming to the end of their monthly payments.\nThe fourth eligibility period is over at the beginning of July.\nView this post on Instagram Taylor, like many other Canadians, is scared that once his CERB runs out, he won’t be able to put food on the table He lost his job to #COVID19, applies for jobs everyday, but can’t get work He has a very simple question for this Prime Minister: Will the CERB be extended?
