Repaying CERB (Canada's Emergency Response Benefit)
This is a confusing time to be sure. The Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) was announced back in March as part of the plan to address the needs of Canadians who had suddenly lost their income as a direct result of COVID19. Easily accessible, easily administered and changed several times to expand eligibility. Some 10 milllion Canadians have tapped into the CERB in recent weeks because they lost their income source either through employment or self employment as a result of COVID-19.
