Benefits of COVID-19 in Canada can be determined with new personalized online tool
If you are wondering what help you can get from the federal government during the pandemic, this might help. Benefits of COVID-19 in Canada can be understood through a new online tool. You will be told which ones apply to your situation.
“Over the past few months, we have put in place a number of programs to help everyone, from students to parents to the elderly, get through this crisis,” he said.
“If you need support but aren’t sure where to start, we now have a new online tool to help you,” Trudeau said.
You can access this help here.
“You will find a list of a few simple questions and the tool will generate a range of programs you might be eligible for,” he said.
This does not guarantee eligibility, but may point you in the right direction.
When you get started, you need to select the province or territory in which you live.
After that, there is a section on lost income due to COVID-19.
Next, you need to talk about your situation, which includes options if you are working from home or are a student.
There are also questions about housing, child care benefits, student loans and post-secondary plans.
Depending on your answers, the site will offer you help adapted to your situation.
If you are a university or college student planning to return to school in the fall and have loans, you can use CESB, take advantage of the break in loan repayments, or get additional financial assistance for the 2020 school year- 2021. .
However, you should always verify that you are actually eligible for any of the benefits that apply to you.

If your situation doesn’t match any of the benefits that the federal government has put in place, the tool suggests checking in the future for new benefits.
You can also check with your provincial or territorial government, as there may be additional support available.
