Who can get the Canada Worker Lockdown Benefit (CWLB)?Updated May 9

4. Apply for the CWLB

You can apply for the Canada Worker Lockdown Benefit (CWLB) online or by phone. To apply, you must wait until the Monday after the week you missed work.

And, you must apply within 60 days of the last day of the week in which you missed work. The last day of the week is Saturday. For example, if you missed work during the week of February 13, 2022, the last day you can apply for the CWLB is April 20, 2022. This is 60 days from the Saturday of that week in February, which is February 19.

If you're not sure if you're eligible for the CWLB or Employment Insurance (EI), you can contact your local community legal clinic, Service Canada, or another employment service.
