Canada already paying unemployed citizens $2,000 per month for coronavirus relief
CERB gives $2,000 a month for the next four months for people who lost their job because of COVID-19. There are differences between CERB and The Emergency Money for the People Act. Those who had no earnings, were unemployed, or are currently unemployed would also be eligible. The United States Department of Labor reported at the beginning of the month, the unemployment rate rose to 4.4% in its workforce. More than 6 million Canadians have already applied for the COVID-19 emergency aid benefits in the past month, according to figures from the Employment Ministers Office.
