Canada Revenue Agency (CRA)

The CRCB, along with the CRB and the CRSB, follows on the CERB, which has now ended.

The CRCB offers eligible workers who are caregivers weekly income of $500.

If your situation continues past 1 week, you will need to apply again. Each household may apply up to a total of 38 weeks between September 27, 2020 and September 25, 2021.

To be eligible, the caregiver must, in part:

  • Be unable to work at least 50% of their work week because they are caring for a family member;
  • Be caring for a child under 12 years old or a family member whose school, daycare, or care establishment is closed because of COVID-19 or because that person is suffering from COVID-19, is in quarantine, or is at risk of serious complications;
  • Have not received one of the other income benefits available (see the list on the program website);
  • Not be on paid leave for this period;
  • Have earned at least $5,000 in 2019, in 2020, or in the 12 months preceding the date of the application;
  • Reside and be present in Canada.

Some conditions apply.
