Trudeau: Canada will pay recent college grads

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks to the press about the latest coronavirus updates in Canada. Trudeau has announced a new fund called the Canada Emergency Student Benefit aimed at helping recent college graduates in Canada get into the workforce amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Eligible students will receive $1,250 a month for four months, and students with disabilities will receive $1,750 a month. In his briefing yesterday, Trudeau acknowledged how many university students were not eligible for benefits under the Canada Emergency Response Benefit, and said that ‘right now, you might be worried about how to make ends meet. You probably can’t work your normal job, and that might be a big problem for rent or groceries… This benefit is designed for you.’
