Accessing Benefits

Friday, March 27, 2020

Here is a document developed by a Carleton professor to help people and employers navigate the many supports available now. It has been written in simple language so to be accessible by everyone. It could also be used by employers who want to help their employees who are impacted by job losses and layoffs.

It addresses the following questions/scenarios:

  • Who can I call for information or to ask a question about financial support from government right now?
  • I need to take sick leave because I’m ill or self-isolating or have to quarantine.
  • I can’t work because I’m caring for someone who is sick.
  • I’ve been laid off.
  • I am at home because my kids cannot go to school or daycare. I need money to make ends meet.
  • My employer can’t pay me but I haven’t been laid off
  • I’m not sure that my employer is following the rules.
  • I’m self-employed. What benefits can I get ?
  • I’m a college or university student and I was counting on my summer job to pay tuition in the fall. What do I do?
  • I’m having trouble keeping up with my rent. Is there help for me?
