Federal Government Extends CERB to Fish & Seafood Industry

In a news release issued yesterday, the Minister of Fisheries & Oceans Bernadette Jordan announced the extension of the Canadian Emergency Response Fund (CERB) to the FIsh & Seafood industry:

The expansion of the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB), announced by the Prime Minister a few days ago, is one example of this tailoring of federal initiatives. The expanded eligibility of the CERB now includes seasonal workers who have exhausted their Employment Insurance and are unable to undertake their usual seasonal work as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Recipients are now allowed to earn up to $1,000 per month while also collecting the CERB. This change will provide further support to those working in fish and seafood companies that cannot operate at full capacity due to the current environment.
