COVID-19: GOOD NEWS FOR THE SELF EMPLOYED who are worried about not qualifying for the Governments COVID-19 EI measures in these uncertain times. "The government is introducing the Emergency Care Benefit (ECB), which will provide up to $900 bi-weekly for up to 15 weeks. This flat-payment benefit will be administered through the CRA and provide income support to workers (including those who are self-employed) who are quarantined or sick with COVID-19 but do not qualify for EI sickness benefits."
