Digital Benefits Finder

If you require financial support due to COVID19, the Government of Canada has an online tool that is designed to help Canadians and their families see what types of financial assistance that is available to them.

With this tool, you will be asked 7 to 10 questions, one at a time. Then you will be shown  a list of benefits that may help in your situation. It will also have links for more information. Please remember to answer the questions as an individual, not a household.

Use the tool here: https://covid-benefits.alpha.canada.ca/en/start

If you are/have a business who is interested in seeing what types of benefits you may be eligible for, there is also an online tool designed for that. Learn more here: https://innovation.ised-isde.canada.ca/s/?language=en
