Make post-secondary students eligible for the Canadian Emergency Response Benefit

This petition made change with 1,915 supporters!

Thousands of post-secondary students rely on summer seasonal employment and internships to pay for rent, groceries, and other necessities. Now, with the covid-19 pandemic and mandatory social distancing, students will not find employment this summer and will struggle to make ends meet. Under the current criteria for the Canadian Emergency Response Benefit, you must have stopped working due to covid-19 to be eligible. This means thousands of students who were expecting to find summer employment will NOT qualify. 

Please sign this petition to tell Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to include students who will be without income during the next few months in the eligibility criteria.
