The Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit (CRCB)

The Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit (CRCB) provides $500 per week for up to 26 weeks per household for workers unable to work for at least 50 per cent of the week because they must care for a child under the age of 12 or family member because schools, day-cares or care facilities are closed due to COVID-19, or because the child or family member is sick or required to quarantine or is at high risk of serious health implications because of COVID-19. 

Canadians can apply for the CRCB beginning October 5th, 2020 through the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). The CRCB will be paid on a weekly basis, meaning Canadians will have to reapply each week they are eligible.
