Excerpt from The Vancouver Sun:
The B.C. emergency benefit is only available for those who are B.C. residents, have met the eligibility requirements for the CERB, and have been approved for the CERB, even if they have not received a benefit yet.
They must also be at least 15 years old, agree to file a 2019 B.C. income tax return, and not be receiving provincial income assistance or disability assistance.
Starting May 1, applications can be made online at gov.bc.ca/workerbenefit
