We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to:
1. Immediately extend Employment Insurance (EI) sickness benefits to 50 weeks;
2. Expand eligibility for the Canada Recovery Benefit to Canadians who are unable to seek employment who provide a medical certificate similar to the one required for EI sickness benefits;
3. Invest urgent funding into research on Long COVID through the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, including its cause(s), manifestation, long-term consequences and potential therapies; and
4. Convene a cross-committee study of the nature and impacts of Long COVID, including the parliamentary committees on Health, Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities, and Indigenous and Northern Affairs.
