Update on the Canada Emergency Student Benefit

Brad WalchukUncategorized

As many of you will already know, applications for the Canada Emergency Student Benefit (CESB) opened today, May 15. CUPE National has created a helpful FAQ on the CESB, found here. Given that your potential eligibility for the CESB relates primarily to your student (not worker) status, we recommend sending any questions you may have to student associations within the University such as the GSA, who have remained apprised of the situation since the news first broke. We thank the GSA for their diligence in providing so many detailed updates to McMaster graduate students, many of whom are also our members!
