COVID Travel Restrictions & Canada Worker Lockdown Benefit
New COVID-related travel restrictions and exemptions came into effect on January 15, 2022. Stricter rules apply, with nearly everyone traveling to Canada needing to show proof of full vaccination status. Immediate family members of Canadians who are under the age of 18 can still get into Canada without being fully vaccinated. Check the above link for more information.
Eligible Ontarians can continue to apply for the Canada Worker Lockdown Benefit (CWLB) during the following periods:
Dec. 19- 25, 2021
Dec. 26 - Jan 1, 2022
Jan 2 - 8, 2022
Jan 9 - 15, 2022
Jan 16 - 22, 2022
Ontarians have up to 60 days after the period has ended to apply for any one-week period benefit. More resources can be found through Connecting Ottawa - an amazing Ottawa not-for-profit organization here, and the Government of Ontario's resource here.
