Here is the link for Canada.ca (federal) benefits that were listed in the budget that came down. Here is the link: https://www.canada.ca/en/services/benefits/covid19-emergency-benefits.html
The Government of Canada has increased the number of weeks of benefits available for workers eligible for Employment Insurance regular benefits, as well as for the Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB), the Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit (CRSB), and the Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit (CRCB). This increase will ensure that Canadian workers who could begin to exhaust these benefits in March will continue to have access to income support while the economy is further recovering.
The Government has also implemented changes to eligibility for the recovery benefits for international travelers who need to quarantine or isolate upon their return to Canada, including people returning from vacation. These changes are retroactive to October 2, 2020.
Not everything was extended: CERB loans and the Canada Emergency Student benefit are closed. Here is current information on alternatives:
The Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) provided financial support to employed and self-employed Canadians who were directly affected by COVID-19.
Applicants received $2,000 for a 4-week period (the same as $500 a week), between March 15 and September 26, 2020.
