First it was workers, businesses and now help’s on the way for students struggling because of the pandemic.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s announced $9-billion help for post-secondary students, who’ll be eligible for $1,250-a-month from May through August.
That amount can rise to $1,750 if the student is caring for a dependent or has a disability.
The Canada Emergency Student Benefit is also available to students who have jobs but are earning less than $1,000-per-month.
Trudeau also says students who volunteer over the summer will be paid between $1,000 and $5,000; depending on the amount of hours worked.
The Prime Minister’s Office also says a student can collect multiple benefits if, for example, they apply for the $1,250 benefit, volunteer and hold a job that pays less than $1,000-a-month.
The government is also doubling students grants for eligible students; up to $6,000 for full-time students and up to $3,600 for part-timers.
