I have a friend who was traveling out of the country for 5 months in the beginning of 2019. He did have a travel visa (but not a working visa). Does my friend qualify for Canada workers benefit?

Thanks in advance.

What is a "travel visa"? Issued by what country? Are you talking about a Canadian TRV (temporary resident visa, a.k.a. tourist visa)?

And it sounds like your pal has been in Canada since June 2019 (if he was away for 5 months at the beginning of the year). Doing what since his return at that time?

Friend is a Canadian citizen, has been since birth. Spends lots of time traveling.
He traveled to Thailand in late 2018 on a visitor visa. He did not have a Thai Work Permit, and did not work abroad.
He has been working in Canada since his return in June 2019. He has made enough money to qualify for the benefit.
