First Ontario Case to Say that CERB is Deductible from Wrongful Dismissal Damages :

In Livshin v. The Clinic Network Canada Inc., 2021 ONSC 6796 (CanLII) Justice Black had this to say about the CERB deductibility debate.

[93]        I agree that the amount of $8,000 that Livshin received in Canada Emergency Response Benefits (CERB) should be deducted from the overall award.

That’s it. That was the complete analysis.
