Alberta opens applications for emergency isolation support
The link for Albertans seeking financial aid is now open. You can find the link here: https://emergencyisolationsupport.alberta.ca/
Eligible working Albertans can receive a one-time emergency isolation support payment of $1,146 if they are required to self-isolate or are the sole caregiver of someone in self-isolation and they have no other source of pay or compensation.
This is a temporary program to bridge the gap until the Federal Emergency Care Benefit is available in April.
Note this is not the Federal Emergency Care Benefit that is coming in April.
If you are eligible for federal Employment Insurance benefits, you are strongly encouraged to apply immediately.
