Information for CERB/EI

The best place to get current and up to date information is the website.

Click on the link for “Supports for Individual” and then “Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB)”, and you will get to a short self assessment tool that will let  you know, based on the situation, whether you should be applying for CERB by completing an EI application or apply for CERB through the Canada Revenue Agency.

If the self assessment advised them to file for EI then they can file on their last day of pay.

There is no reference code provided therefor  say no to that question and proceed with their application.

Your ROE is not used in the calculation of CERB benefits.  All claims established March 15,2020 or later will be set at a rate of $500 per week.

CERB is available for a maximum of 16 weeks.  If people are still unemployed after receiving 16 weeks of CERB, or it is October 3, 2020 , they would then collect regular EI benefits.

I cannot stress enough the importance of staff checking the website for the most complete and up to date information.

Manitoba Association of Non-Teaching Employees


The Manitoba Association of Non-Teaching Employees (MANTE) was certified as the bargaining unit for all clerical employees of the St. James-Assiniboia School Division #2 on November 23, 1977.

We are currently an organization of approximately 400 members. At the school level we represent Educational Assistants, Program Assistants,  Library Technicians, Interpreter Tutors, Secretarial Staff, Computerized Notetakers and Behavior Intervention Specialists. At the Board Office and Maintenance we represent non-management Secretarial Staff including payroll, accounts payable/receivable and reception.

The objects and purposes of the Association are to unite into one organization all non-managerial employees, to act as a bargaining agent for employees, to regulate the relations between employees in an equitable manner and to maintain harmonious relations between the employers and the employees.
