Important Information for You

This month I would like to bring a few items to your attention based on the calls we are receiving.

New COVID benefits are now available and a special COVID-19 Benefits Finder tool allows you to find benefits you may be entitled to by answering a few easy questions. More at www.lenwebbermp.ca/covid-benefits.

If you have recently travelled on an aircraft, cruise, or train, you may have been exposed to COVID-19. The Government of Canada maintains a list of these possible exposure incidents. Recent travelers should consult this webpage regularly for 14 days following their travel. More at www.lenwebbermp.ca/covid-exposures.

The Benefits Finder tool at www.canadabenefits.gc.ca allows you to determine what benefits you may be entitled to by answering a few easy questions. Your responses will short-list possible benefits and information on how to apply. Many Federal-Provincial programs are also included in the search results.

Fraudsters and scammers are exploiting the ongoing pandemic to facilitate fraud, scams, and cybercrime as they look to profit off people’s fears, uncertainties, and misinformation. Find out how to protect yourself from these scams. More at www.lenwebbermp.ca/mp-report-pandemic-fraud.
