Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced this morning that the Canada Emergency Response Benefit program will be extended by eight weeks (until August 29).
“The reality is that even as we start to reopen, a lot of people still need this support to pay their bills while they look for work”, Trudeau said.
“So, if you’ve been getting the CERB and you still can’t work because you are unable to find a job or it’s just not possible, you will keep getting that $2000 a month”, added Justin Trudeau at a press conference at Rideau Cottage.

The Prime Minister also confirmed that the Canada-U.S. border will remain closed for an additional 30 days for non-essential travel until July 21.
