Income affected by capacity restrictions?

The Canada Worker Lockdown Benefit (CWLB) picks up with the Canada Recovery Benefit leaves off, giving temporary income support to employed and self-employed people who cannot work due to a COVID-19 lockdown. The CWLB is only available when a COVID-19 lockdown order is designated for an individual’s region. If eligible for the CWLB, an individual can receive $300 ($270 after taxes withheld) for each 1-week period in which a region is locked down (between October 24, 2021 and May 7, 2022). The CWLB is administered by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

Designated COVID-19 lockdown regions are only eligible for specific weeks, and individuals may apply up to 60 days after that period has ended. Manitoba is designated for the following periods:

Individuals should also verify that they meet all other eligibility criteria before applying.
