The government of Canada would provide $500 per week for up to two weeks, for workers who are sick or must self-isolate for reasons related to COVID-19.

Eligibility

  • Residents in Canada who are at least 15 years of age and have a valid Social Insurance Number (SIN);
  • Workers employed or self-employed at the time of the application; and
  • Workers who earned at least $5,000 in 2019 or in 2020.

This benefit would be effective from September 27, for one year.

感觉要求还是很简单的,但是15年的居住历史倒是让很多人倒吸了一口凉气吧。果然政府也是越来越鸡贼了呢。
