Grants in support of the Compensation for Employers of Reservists Program
The Compensation for Employers of Reservists Program (CERP) provides financial support to civilian employers of reservists and self-employed reservists. This support is offered to help offset operating costs their businesses may incur when a reservist employee is deployed away from work on a Chief of the Defence Staff-named 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 those resulting from:
- training or hiring replacement workers
- increasing overtime hours for existing employees
- business realignment to mitigate staff reduction
- reduced revenue
Type of transfer payment: Grant
General targeted recipient group: Employers of or self-employed reservists
