Canadian Bill C-4 Response to Covid-19

The Canadian population has been struggling to keep the economy circulating due to the horrific threat of the recent pandemic and it's lingering effects. The government has stepped in taking a step beyond the Canadian Emergency Response Benefit with the new Bill C-4 for caregivers and those who are battling the Covid-19 virus.


Please follow the following link to view the full first-reading: Bill C-4


  • Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit (CRCB)-Those unable to work for at least 50% of the week, due to caring for a child under the age of 12 because school/daycare and care facilities are closed due to Covid-19, or because said child is sick and/or required to quarantine or is at high risk of serious health implications due to Covid-19. Based on my interpretation of the legislation, the child does not have to be sick but can simply be required to quarantine due to exposure to a Covid positive person. This rule also applies to caring for other family members. This benefit constitutes $500.00 per week for up to a maximum of 26 weeks. The difference with these benefits, as compared to regular E.I benefits, is that Canadians will have to apply each week they are eligible and meet the criteria.


  • Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit (CRSB)-Those unable to work for at least 50% of the week, due to themselves having contracted Covid-19, are self-isolating for reasons related to Covid-19 or have contracted a separate illness and are undergoing treatment which might make them more susceptible to Covid-19. The latter must be verified by a qualified medical professional, “person in authority” or “government or public authority”. Those who meet the criteria are also eligible for $500.00 per week but only up to a maximum of 2 weeks.

Ontario releases gradual reopening plan, though no exact dates provided


Ontario Province laid out a plan in a series of stages that show how Ontario plans to reopen, but it is not a calendar. This plan will be implemented under the “New Normal” conditions of maintaining social distancing and ensuring the health and safety of individuals, until a vaccination is found where Ontario can then go back to normal.


Businesses from all sectors are encouraged to present ideas and best practices as a proposal to their MPPs on how the business will reopen while meeting the public health guidance in their operations for presenting to the health committee for review and considerations.


The province has classified its response to COVID-19 in three phases: Protect and Support, which includes the imposition of emergency orders and restrictions; Restart, which is a gradual reopening of the economy; and Recover, which is ensuring safety amid a “new normal.”


Beginning on May 4th the “Restart” phase has taken effect, the plan includes three stages for reopening:


Stage 1

· Businesses that can immediately meet or modify operations to meet public health guidance and occupational health and safety, for instance through curbside pick-up or delivery.

· Open some outdoor spaces like parks.

· Allow for a greater number of individuals to attend some events, like funerals.

· Hospitals begin to offer some non-urgent scheduled surgeries and other services.

· Continued protections for vulnerable populations and practice of physical distancing.


Stage 2

· Open more workplaces “based on risk assessments.” This could include service industries and additional offices, as well as retail.

· Open more outdoor spaces and allow some larger public gatherings.

· Continued protections for vulnerable populations and continued practice of physical distancing.


Stage 3

· Open all workplaces “responsibly.”

· Further relaxing restrictions on public gatherings.

· Continued restrictions on large public gatherings, including concerts and sporting events until the “foreseeable future.”

· Continued protections for vulnerable populations and continued practice of physical distancing.


Even after reopening has been completed, the final stage of the plan includes the “continued practice of physical distancing” and “significant mitigation plans” to limit health risks.
