Private practice dietitians should receive CERB benefits
DC is aware that the new Canadian Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) is unfair to private practice dietitians that still provide essential services, even though they have lost most of their revenue. We have spoken to a representative from Finance Canada and sent a letter to ask that dietitians be eligible to receive the CERB. Our message was heard loud and the Prime Minister announced on April 6 that major changes to the CERB were to be announced soon to accommodate workers with significantly reduced hours. You can read the letter here.
