Ottawa sent nearly $12 million in CERB payments to applicants with foreign addresses

National Post: 'The federal government sent nearly $12 million in Canada Emergency Response Benefit payments to people with foreign addresses in the first seven months of the pandemic.

'Documents tabled in the House of Commons last week following questions from Conservative MP Jamie Schmale reveal that 1,610 people received the pandemic financial aid benefit despite applying with a mailing address outside of Canada.

'Because they were able to apply for multiple months in a row, the government says it paid them a total of $11.9 million by the time the program was put to bed and replaced by different benefits in September 2020.'
