I made most of my money in tips. Can I still qualify for federal and provincial COVID-19 benefits?

08, 10-2021

To qualify for the CRB, CRCB, or CRSB you must have earned at least $5,000 in the last 12 months or in 2019 or 2020. Applications for the CERB have closed. To see the BC Recovery Benefit requirements, see HERE.

The $5,000 includes all employment and self-employment income. This includes among other types of income, tips you have declared as income.

For a list of all provincial and federal COVID-19 benefit programs, see HERE.
