Updates to CRB, CRSB, CRCB, and EI

19 February 2021 12:08 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

At this morning's briefing from Prime Minister Trudeau, I was expecting to hear about the vaccine rollout and the public safety legislation. What I didn't expect was extensions for the Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB), the Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit (CRSB), the Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit (CRCB), and Employment Insurance (EI).


Here are the details:
  • CRB benefit extended from 26 weeks to 38 weeks
  • CRCB benefit also extended from 26 to 38 weeks
  • CRSB benefit is extended from 2 weeks to 4 weeks
  • EI benefit is extended from 26 weeks to 50 weeks

As I write this, the Canada.ca website has not been updated with the new information, but you can link to the CBC news story here or watch the announcement below.
