  • Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks in the House

"The emergency response benefit of Canada relief fund has sent you a deposit", reads an example of the scam message that then asks the receiver to click a link to claim their money.

"We have been in discussions with the United States on this", he told a news conference, without giving details.

"Like I said from the start we will adapt our approach wherever needed", Trudeau explained in a briefing live-streamed on the APTN News Facebook page Wednesday.

Trudeau said the emergency benefit application portal will launch soon and Canadians will see money in their wallets within 14 days of applying, while other boosts and top-up measures are not expected to flow until May.

He added that "If you've lost your job - whether you worked full time, on contract, or were self-employed - you qualify for the benefit".

Workers who can't work for nearly any reason related to COVID-19, including staying home to look after others, the need to quarantine or self-isolate, or because their employers have closed or reduced business and can't offer them as many or any shifts.

People in Canada can also watch the program a day after its United States release on CTV. Other guests will include Will Ferrell , David Blaine , and many more.

Furloughed workers, those who are still technically employed but not receiving income, would also qualify for the benefit.

According to Trudeau, up to 1 million citizens have applied for employment insurance, showing the disastrous effects of virus-related shutdowns. "Families are anxious about when they'll get help".

People wait in line to get into a walk-in test clinic for COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, in Montreal on Monday, March 23, 2020.

Canada and the US mutually agreed to shut down the border to all but essential traffic one week ago to prevent the spread of COVID-19 between the two countries.

Trudeau said the government is spending billions on programs to help individuals pay their bills over the next few months as the novel coronavirus forces people out of work due to illnesses and enforced closures.

"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".
