A client of mine has a rental apartment leased out to three young people (all servers) who lost their jobs recently. None of them have any income now. Zero.
George (their landlord) reduced their rent for the next four months by half (they can catch up over the following year by paying a bit more each month) and I’ve asked him to pass this along to his tenants… see below.
Here’re more details on the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB). Everyone who has lost their job/income should apply. Please pass this on to your significant others and friends who are in difficulty…
PM Justin Trudeau announced:
The Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) announced will allow applicants to receive $2,000 a month for the next four months for those who have lost their income during the coronavirus pandemic.
Trudeau said the online portal will be available as soon as possible, and Canadians will get the funds “within 10 days of applying.”
The federal government is looking to get money out “quickly and reliably” and Trudeau said that the system will be up and running by April 6.
“Checks will be flowing after that,” he said.
The CERB would be paid every four weeks and be available from March 15, 2020 until October 3, 2020.
Be well everyone,
