COVID-19 Weekly Update 9

May 24th, 2020

Week 9 of the COVID-19 series is a break from the global tour.  Matthew Siwiec joins me from his home in Toronto to review the "alphabet soup" of Canadian emergency benefits there are out there.  From EI to CERB to CESB to CEWS to OCECRA, among others, we try to make some sense of them.  Since these benefits change all the time is a good idea to talk about them as much as possible. 

Here are links to some of the resources mentioned in the episode:

Matthew's COVID-19 page – look for updates later this week

TPL Event – May 27th 5 to 6pm EST  - this coming Wednesday, open to the public

Benefits Finder for individuals – Didn’t get to this in the episode, but it is a great resource

Summary of benefits
