Alberta Court of Appeal Follows BCCA by Confirming CERB Not Deductible from Wrongful Dismissal Damages:

In Oostlander v Cervus Equipment Corporation, 2023 ABCA 13 the Court overturned the trial judge’s decision to deduct CERB payments from the wrongful dismissal damages. The Alberta court followed the BCCA decision in Yates v Langley Motor Sport ( 2022 BCCA 398) .

There are now two Court of Appeal decisions confirming this principle and no appeal decisions that go the other way.
