  • In April, 14% of jobless women and 20% of jobless men had no income supports.
  • As a result, 731,000 jobless women and 681,000 jobless men were without CERB or EI in April.
  • Allowing workers to make $1,000 and still qualify for CERB will give 550,000 women and 354,000 men access to the benefit.
