Treatment of Canada Emergency Response Benefit Payments
42.1 (1) This section sets out rules respecting the treatment of payments of income support under the Canada Emergency Response Benefit Act, referred to in this section as “CERB payments”.
(2) Subject to subsection (3), the first $200 of CERB payments received by each member of a benefit unit and 50 per cent of any remaining amount shall not be included in income. However, where CERB payments would result in an applicant being ineligible for income support or in a recipient becoming ineligible for income support, CERB payments shall be further exempt from income such that income support payable to the recipient is equal to $2.50.
(3) All CERB payments received by a member of a benefit unit are exempt if the member is,
(a) less than 18 years of age or an adult attending secondary school full time; or
(b) in full-time attendance in a program of study at a post-secondary institution.
2. This Regulation is deemed to have come into force on March 1, 2020.
