Carleton University Professor Jennifer Robson has created a very useful plain language guide to help those trying to access government programs in the time of coronavirus. Robson has posted a Google Document online with straightforward instructions on how to apply for things like Employment Insurance, Caregiver Benefits, rent subsidies and others. She answers questions like: “I’m self-employed. What benefits can I get?” and “I am at home because my kids cannot go to school or daycare. I need money to make ends meet.”
You can find Robson’s guide here in PDF form online.
