疫情期间,一些学生担心他们没有资格获得每月2,000加元的加拿大紧急救济金,尽管该补贴已经扩大到兼职和季节性工人。该补贴申请人必须在过去12个月或整个2019获得至少5,000币的收入。但是一些仅从事兼职或暑期工作的大学生的收入远低于该水平。

加拿大总理杜鲁多(Justin Trudeau)宣布,由于疫情导致教育和工作状态发生了变化的学生将很快可以申请新的加拿大紧急学生补贴。该加拿大紧急学生补贴总计金额90亿加币。

凡是高中以上学历并且符合资格的学生,从5月到8月每月可获得1250币。如果您正在照看他人或有残障,则该金额将增加到每月1750币。大学和学院在校生,今年九月份即将入学的学生以及201912月份毕业的学生均符合资格。并且,每月收入少于1000币的在职学生也可以申请。

鲁多说,实施这一补贴还需要更多的立法,目前正在就如何尽快实施这项新补贴进行讨论。并且,将会更多补贴政策出台,例如:

  • 为目前急需帮助或遭受疫情冲击最严重的年轻人提供76000个工作岗位
  • 在三到四个月内,拨款超2.91亿加币,提高奖学金,助学金,研究拨款的金额
  • COVID-19抗疫志愿者学生提供新的加拿大学生服务补贴,金额1000~5000加币
  • 拨款超过7500万加币,资助原住民,因纽特人和梅蒂斯民族学生
  • 2020-2021学年的助学金额增加一倍,全日制学生最高6000加币,PT学生最高3600加币

之前的加拿大紧急救济金饱受公众诟病,因为它将很多加拿大人排除在外。因此,联邦政府已承诺,将改善紧急援助计划中已经发现的一些错误。政府表示,他们工作的重点将是调整标准,向尽可能多的人发放救济金。

时,联邦政府已经宣布对加拿大暑期工作计划进行临时更改,以帮助学生在暑假开始后能在国家的状态下找到一份工作。现在,雇佣暑期学生的雇主可以最多申请到当地最低时薪同等数目补贴。政府表示,该政策旨在为1530岁的加拿大人创造多达7万个就业机会,并为他们提供工作经验和收入

Support for students and new grads affected by COVID-19

Post-secondary students are feeling the economic impacts of COVID-19. Many students were preparing to start a summer job in May, and are now worried about how to pay rent and cover basic living expenses, while recent graduates are struggling to find meaningful work. This is a critical point in their lives, and we must do everything possible to support their future.

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today announced comprehensive support of nearly $9 billion for post-secondary students and recent graduates. This plan will help provide the financial support they need this summer, help them continue their studies in the fall and help many get the experience they need to start their careers. These measures include launching:

·       the proposed Canada Emergency Student Benefit, which would provide support to students and new graduates who are not eligible for the Canada Emergency Response Benefit. This benefit would provide $1,250 per month for eligible students or $1,750 per month for eligible students with dependents or disabilities. The benefit would be available from May to August 2020.

 ·       the new Canada Student Service Grant, which will help students gain valuable work experience and skills while they help their communities during the COVID‑19 pandemic. For students who choose to do national service and serve their communities, the new Canada Student Service Grant will provide up to $5,000 for their education in the fall. 

The Government of Canada will expand existing federal employment, skills development, and youth programming to create up to 116,000 jobs, placements, and other training opportunities to help students find employment and develop valuable skills this summer and over the coming months. In addition, to help students continue their studies in the fall, the government will:

·       double the Canada Student Grants for all eligible full-time students to up to $6,000 and up to $3,600 for part-time students in 2020-21.The Canada Student Grants for Students with Permanent Disabilities and Students with Dependents would also be doubled.

·       broaden eligibility for student financial assistance by removing the expected student’s and spouse’s contributions in 2020-21, in recognition that many students and families will struggle to save for school this year.

·       enhance the Canada Student Loans Program by raising the maximum weekly amount that can be provided to a student in 2020-21 from $210 to $350.

·       increase existing distinctions-based support for First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Nation students pursuing post-secondary education by providing an additional $75.2 million in 2020-21.

·       extend expiring federal graduate research scholarships and postdoctoral fellowships, and supplement existing federal research grants, to support students and post-doctoral fellows, by providing $291.6 million to the federal granting councils. In addition, the government intends to enhance work opportunities for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows through the National Research Council of Canada.

Taken together, these programs will not only help ensure more students get the financial support they need, but the opportunities and experience many students were counting on.

The government will continue to monitor and respond to the health, social, and economic impacts of COVID-19. We are ready to take additional actions as needed to stabilize the economy and mitigate the impacts of the pandemic on Canadians.

Quotes

“The future of our economy and our country relies on the opportunities and support we provide to Canadian students today. To promote a sustainable economic recovery, we need a strong workforce and good job opportunities for young people. That means giving them the support they need to continue their studies and encouraging them to serve their communities. Together, we will get through this difficult time.”

The Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada

“Canada’s COVID-19 Economic Response Plan is providing Canadians and businesses in all sectors across the country with the help they need to get through the current challenges and position them for success as we emerge from the crisis. The significant new supports we are providing for students and recent graduates are a reflection of the central role they will play in ensuring that Canada emerges from these challenges stronger than ever.”

The Hon. Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Disability Inclusion

“In order to ensure that post-secondary students are able to confidently continue their studies in the fall, our government is proposing significant measures to support them.

The Hon. Mona Fortier, Minister of Middle Class Prosperity and Associate Minister of Finance

“Our young people have the energy and skills to help heal Canadian communities from coast to coast to coast. Our government is committed to providing enhancements to programs such as the Canada Service Corps to ensure our greatest resource – our people – can contribute and succeed. Because young people are not only the leaders of tomorrow, they are the leaders of today.”

—The Hon. Bardish Chagger, Minister of Diversity and Inclusion and Youth

"Having spent most of my career teaching students and trying to prepare them for life outside of the classroom, I understand how difficult and stressful the current situation must be for them. These are challenging times, but with today's announcement, as promised, our government is providing Canadian students with the support and opportunities they need to get through this and keep moving forward."

—The Hon. Jean-Yves Duclos, President of the Treasury Board
