During this difficult time, it is more important than ever to come together and help those in need, ensuring Ontarians have access to food, medicine and basic necessities.

Please see the attached information, share with your members and visit www.sparkontario.ca if your not-for-profit organization needs volunteers or someone from your community is interested in helping those impacted by COVID-19.

Durant ces moments difficiles, il est plus important que jamais de s’entraider et de rendre service aux personnes qui en ont le plus besoin afin de nous assurer que toutes nos concitoyennes et tous nos concitoyens ont accès à de la nourriture, à des médicaments et aux nécessités de subsistance. Le gouvernement ontarien encourage la population à faire du bénévolat afin de venir en aide aux aînés, aux personnes handicapées et aux autres Ontariennes et Ontariens qui sont touchés par l’éclosion de la COVID-19.
Si votre organisme sans but lucratif est à la recherche de bénévoles ou vous connaissez des gens intéresser à aider, svp vous rendre sur le site www.elanontario.ca. Pour plus d’informations, voir les documents en pièces jointes et partager dans vos réseaux à fin de venir en aide aux personnes touchées par la COVID-19.
Merci pour votre soutien continu à l’égard du bénévolat en Ontario. Restez en sécurité.
During this health crisis, Carefor is providing much needed meals on wheels services to our most vulnerable community members. Carefor volunteers are delivering meals to our community seniors. M&L Supply has generously donated much needed funding to aid this dedicated Carefor team to ensure their services can continue at this crucial time. The township wanted M&L Supply to be recognized for their community support and collaboration.
The Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) is set to open on Monday, April 6th, 2020. Applications are asked to be made based on the month of your birth (see here (https://www.canada.ca/en/services/benefits/ei/cerb-application.html) ).

1. The applicant must have received $5,000 of income in 2019 or in the 12 months prior to the date of application. It must come from one of the following sources:
* Maternity/Paternity leave
1. It is $500/week, which is roughly $2,167/month. So this is actually more than the $2,000/month that is being spoken about.
2. The CERB is available to those who stop working for reasons related to COVID-19 (lay-off, quarantine, sick, etc.) Please read the criteria for specifics.
3. To continue to be eligible for the CERB, you must have stopped working and be without employment income for at least 14 consecutive days in the four-week period.
4. If you are already on EI, you don’t need to do anything at this point. You will automatically be converted to the CERB.
5. This benefit is taxable.
6. You should register for your CRA My Account ASAP to complete the application and set up direct deposit. I am attaching a list of instructions on how to do so.
You are personally required to do this yourself.
