Compensation for Employers of Reservists Program
The Compensation for Employers of Reservists Program (CERP) will provide financial support to civilian employers, and self-employed reservists, to help offset operational costs their businesses may incur when a reservist employee is deployed away from work on a Chief of the Defence Staff-named – international or domestic – operation. Eligible applicants will receive a lump sum payment, in the form of a grant, following the deployment period of the reservist employee.
Operating costs to employers may include:
- Training or hiring replacement workers
- increasing overtime hours for existing employees
- Business realignment to mitigate staff reduction
- Reduced revenue
To submit an application, visit the Employment and Social Development Canada funding page.
