Canada’s workers are struggling through the fourth wave of the pandemic. Recent Labour Force reporting shows that 250,000 people have been out of work for a year or more.
More than 750,000 are still reliant on the Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB) to make ends meet—and it’s set to run out on Oct 23, 2021.
Without EI and CRB, three quarters of a million Canadians won’t be able to pay the rent, or put food on the table. We’re talking about our family, friends, and neighbours. It’s not right.
Time is ticking. Send a letter to Parliament Hill and tell them to extend emergency COVID-19 benefits now.
