. Federal government extending Canadians’ access to pandemic benefits « JO LEE MAGAZINE

CBC – The federal government will extend the period of time claimants can receive several pandemic income benefits, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced today.

“As some workers could begin to exhaust their benefits in late March, this increase would ensure continued support as Canada’s economy and labour force recovers,” the government said in a news release. “By increasing the number of available weeks for these important benefits, the government is giving certainty to workers in hard hit sectors and their families, and better positioning our economy to recover.”
