The Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit (CRSB)

The Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit (CRSB) provides $500 per week for up to a maximum of two weeks, for workers who are unable to work for at least 50 per cent of the week because they contracted COVID-19, self-isolated for reasons related to COVID-19, or have underlying conditions, are undergoing treatments or have contracted other sicknesses that, in the opinion of a medical practitioner, nurse practitioner, person in authority, government or public health authority, would make them more susceptible to COVID-19. This benefit supports our commitment to ensure all Canadian workers have access to paid sick leave.

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