Dear Chamber Members,
New federal measures to help Canadians thrown out of work because of the global pandemic.
Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland and Employment Minister Carla Qualtrough presented new financial measures for those who don't qualify for employment insurance (EI) when the Canada emergency response benefit (CERB) runs out.
According to the government, four million people are currently on CERB, and many have already received their last payment. Others will exhaust the benefit on Aug. 29.
The government expects nearly three million of those Canadians will be able to transition to EI.
