Attention! The CRA Is Extending the $2,000/Month CRB to 38 Weeks
If you have been claiming the Canada Revenue Agency’s (CRA) Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB) regularly since September 27, 2020, this week would have been the last week of your benefit. This is because every Canadian could get the CRB for a maximum of 26 weeks. But the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic has changed everything.
