United Against Hate @ Dentonia Park

Dear Community Members,

A hate crime happened on June 25th, 2020 in Dentonia Park. Two local residents were victims of a brutal assault as they walked their dog near the splash pad. Candace was tackled to the ground and kicked in the head and knocked unconscious by two white assailants who live in the area. Her partner, Mark was violently assaulted by a third assailant and subjected to racist abuse. Candace suffered a serious concussion. The police were slow to arrive on the scene and did not seek out a statement from the victims. When questioned about why they had not laid charges on the assailants, they said “it’s he said, she said”. This, despite Candace having been taken away on a stretcher after the assault!
Around the world, people are rising up against systemic racism and a growing climate of racist brutality. The east end of this city is no exception! Join a Community Art Rally and Call for Justice on Saturday, August 29 from 4pm to 7pm. Help reclaim Dentonia Park – join us to make art that speaks out against hate!
Please bring your pre-made Art/Signs to the event, we will surround the park with our messages of Unity Against Hate and Love for Survivors of Racist Violence. Art making and other activities will adhere to distancing requirements.
Art supplies, water and snacks will be available but please bring and wear your own mask if possible, and remember to physically distance.

Extension of CERB & New Changes to EI

Dear Community Members,

The pandemic continues to severely impact workers across Canada, especially those who are precariously employed. As the economic reopens, many people are faced with new anxieties about their financial status. Yesterday, the federal government announced another extension to the CERB, new changes to the EI benefits and the launch of new recovery benefits in order to support millions of workers across Canada who continue to be affected by the pandemic. These changes are as follows:

  1. Extension of Canada Emergency Relief Benefit (CERB): CERB Benefits will be extended by another 4 weeks for a current total of 28 weeks of benefit. After that, CERB recipients will start to be transitioned to EI and other economic support programs.
  2. Changes to EI: The federal government announced new changes that are aimed to increase people’s access to EI Regular, Sickness, Maternity, and other special benefits. The key changes to EI are:
    • Minimum of 120 hours of work required to apply
    • Minimum benefit rate of $400/week
    • Atleast 26 weeks of regular benefit

3. New recovery benefit programs: The government announced three new temporary economic support programs to support those who generally are not eligible for EI (ie: self-employed, gig-workers, etc.) during this transitionary period. This includes:

    • Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB): will provide $400/week for up to 26 weeks, to workers who are self-employed or are not eligible for EI but still require additional financial support.
    • Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit (CRSB) will provide $500/week for up to two weeks, for workers who are sick or must self-isolate due to COVID-19.
    • Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit (CRCB) will provide $500/week for up to 26 weeks per household for eligible Canadians unable to work because they must care for:
      • a child under age 12 due to the closures of schools or daycares because of COVID-19.
      • a family member with a disability or a dependent because their day program or care facility is closed due to COVID-19.
      • a child, a family member with a disability, or a dependent who is not attending school, daycare, or other care facilities under the advice of a medical professional due to being at high-risk if they contract COVID-19.

The three new benefits are yet to be implemented by the federal government but they seek to introduce new legislation in order to implement these benefits.

You can read the official statement released by the federal government at the following link: https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/news/2020/08/government-of-canada-announces-plan-to-help-support-canadians-through-the-next-phase-of-the-recovery.html?fbclid=IwAR01ELsDRCZTk4YQD-_9bfxhJ86PARSipNOt9e4Bi6Xt-ppFZ7Ugo7veZxY

Update on OSAP Loans and Grants

Dear Community Members,

If you or your children have recently applied for OSAP for the upcoming school year, you may have noticed that the ratio of loans to grants being provided to applicants is different from the previous years. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a lot of people have either lost jobs due to closures or lost the opportunity for summer work positions, hence the Canadian federal government has announced that a majority of loans (money you return at a later date) will be transformed into grants (money you keep).

The grant money you usually receive was said to be doubled, hence the OSAP benefits you will be receiving will have a larger grant amount than the loan amount. Keep in mind that people are not receiving any greater amount of money in comparison to previous years, and the only changes being made to OSAP for the upcoming school year is the change in the ratio of grants to loans.

For more information on the various changes made to support students, feel free to check out the federal government’s websites:

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the changes to OSAP funds, feel free to reach out to us at SAWRO.

Transition from CERB to EI

Dear Community Members,

The Canada Emergency Relief Benefit (CERB) will soon be coming to an end with the last claim period ending on September 26, 2020. The federal government has announced that eligible CERB recipients who are not able to return back to work upon the end of CERB benefits will be able to transition into Employment Insurance (EI) benefits.

This proposed transition will leave many people receiving far less than the CERB fixed payment of $500 per week. Out of the 8.58 million CERB recipients, only 1.4 million people will be eligible to transition into EI benefits. Out of the 1.4 million people eligible for EI, 38% of people will be receiving less than $500 per week. The average eligible EI recipients will recieve about $312 a week whereas about 284,700 people will be receiving between $100 to $200 a week only. The chart below showcases the proportion of eligible EI recipients and the amount of money they are to receive. http://behindthenumbers.ca/2020/08/14/more-on-who-will-be-worse-off-in-the-switch-from-cerb-to-ei/

The federal government has also decreased the threshold of unemployent to 13.1%. This means that EI applicants from a region with an unemployment rate higher than  13.1% are guaranteed a minimum benefit for 26 weeks according to the chart below.

https://www.canada.ca/en/services/benefits/ei/ei-regular-benefit/benefit-amount.html

The current Toronto region unemplement rate is at 14.5% hence EI applicant require a minimum of 420 work hours from the past year to qualify for EI benefit and will receive the benefit for 28 weeks.

The federal government has mentioned that once a CERB recipients’ claim period has ended, Service Canada representatives will review their application and if they have submitted their latest ROE and are eligible for EI benefits, they will automatically set up their EI claimant. Potential EI recipients are told to continuosly monitor their Sevice Canada accounts to see if their application have been submitted by representatives.

All the data mentioned in this post comes from the following articles:

If you have any concerns and or questions regarding you CERB or EI, please feel free to contact us at SAWRO.
