Trudeau reveals plans to end CERB, transition recipients to EI in September
The federal government has announced its intention to shift recipients of the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) to the federal employment insurance (EI) program, beginning in September.
In mid-June, the government announced the CERB would be extended to the end of the summer.
Qualtrough said Canada’s EI system was “ready” for the change, adding there will be no disruption of current EI benefits.
More information on changes to the government’s current EI program and phasing out of CERB is expected to be released before the end of August.
News of the government’s CERB plans follows shortly after major changes to the 75 percent wage subsidy program passed in the House and Senate.
