It includes a merged, single benefit that will cover workers who have lost their incomes.

"In view of all of these connections and the importance of the relationship, Canada is strongly opposed to this USA proposal and we have made that opposition very, very clear to our American counterparts, and we will continue to do so".

Workers who are still employed but aren't receiving income because of work disruptions would also qualify for the CERB.

"Canadians who are eligible for EI regular and sickness benefits would still be able to access their normal EI benefits, if still unemployed, after the 16-week period covered by the CERB".

The Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) welcomed the federal government's announcement of the CERB, calling the government benefits program "a significant step forward in addressing the growing economic emergency that accompanies the nation's efforts to avoid the COVID-19 health crisis".

Introduces a pause on the repayments of Canada Student Loans in the Canada Student Financial Assistance Act, the Canada Student Loans Act, and the Apprenticeship Loans Act in order to introduce a 6-month moratorium on the repayment of Canada Student Loans for all borrowers now in repayment.

Trudeau also told reporters that the government is still working to repatriate Canadians are who still overseas and unable to get home. The Government of Canada has announced an aid package for those affected by coronavirus, and to be honest, the provincial supports are merely a bonus to the $2,000 a month for four months that Trudeau has pledged to those who need it.

The government says it will do spot checks to ensure compliance. United Nations chief Antonio Guterres said the worldwide community must to everything it can "to prevent COVID-19 from wreaking havoc in places with limited health care capacity and resilience".

In a scandalous Facebook post , co-owner of the United States store Gerrity's, Joe Fasula , detailed exactly what had happened. Fasula said that the District Attorney's office is handling the case and will be "aggressively pursuing numerous charges".

"I can assure you that the finance minister has had conversations directly with the banks about credit card interest rates", he said.

The Canadian Cattlemen's Association's executive vice-president Dennis Laycraft says the industry has been working with Agriculture Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to ensure meat-packing plants remain open.

Finance Minister Bill Morneau announced another $25-billion in direct aid for citizens affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Trudeau said the government's website is the best place "to find reliable information on everything we're doing".

Qualtrough says the government opted for the single benefit because the decades-old employment insurance system wasn't created to handle an economic shock where millions of workers wouldn't qualify for assistance.

Trying to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus has forced governments to order businesses closed and companies to ask employees to work from home.

On the call with worldwide leaders, Trudeau is set to discuss further global co-ordination in both the health and economic response to a rapidly spreading virus that, as several federal officials have stated: knows no borders.
