Yes, you may qualify for STD/LTD benefits, and you should apply right away. You can get the application forms from your HR department, or directly from your insurance company.

If you don't have STD/LTD, you can read about some of the government assistance programs that you may qualify for on our website at: https://stlawyers.ca/disability-law/faq/government-income-support-programs/.
