By Remitbee - May 14, 2020

Yesterday, Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau announced new information regarding the CESB (Canadian Emergency Student Benefit). Students that are planning to apply for CESB should register for a CRA My Account if they have not already.


Any Canadian post-secondary student or recent graduate whose employment has been affected by the COVID19 pandemic can apply for the $1250 a month benefit. CESB will be available for students from May to August. Applications start after 6 am EST on Friday, May 15th. Learn more about CESB Eligibility.

This benefit was added to help students as many of them are not eligible for the $2000 a month CERB offered by the government.
