Starting today, eligible students and graduates can apply for the Canada Emergency Student Benefit (CESB)!

The Canada Emergency Student Benefit (CESB) provides financial support to both post-secondary and recent post-secondary students, as well as high school graduates who are unable to secure summer employment due to economic constraints resulting from COVID-19 developments.

This benefit is for students who do not qualify for the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) or Employment Insurance (EI).

From May to August 2020, the CESB provides a payment to eligible students of:

  • $1,250 for each 4-week period
  • $2,000 for each 4-week period (if you have a disability or dependants)

For full details regarding the CESB program and how to apply, please click here.
