In these difficult times we need to stand together in faith. We know how hard it is for many of our congregants, and we wanted to give you resources to help you and your families.
Information from Canada Emergency Response Benefit
CERB (Canada Emergency Response Benefit) has been established by the Fed Govt. If you’re unable to continue working, or are working less hours, b/c of COVID-19, you’ll get $500/wk. (Info has it that something is being worked out for students who’re unable to work while they school or take up summer student jobs from May; and recent / May graduates who are unable to enter the work force…).

Jan-Mar: Mondays only, beginning yesterday Apr 6
Apr-Jun: Tuesdays only, beginning Apr 7
Jul-Sep: Wednesdays only, beginning Apr 8
Oct-Dec: Thursdays only, beginning Apr 9

What Southside Is Doing
Starting April 10th we will be starting a food distribution service for those who are in need during this time.
