Wage Earner Protection Program

From Employment and Social Development Canada

Your employer has filed for bankruptcy or is now subject to receivership.

You have been let go and you know your employer owes you money; wages, vacation pay, termination pay, severance pay - even your last few days of work.

You have certain protections under the Wage Earner Protection Program (WEPP) Act.

A trustee will be named to handle your former employer’s bankruptcy or receivership file.

You will need to file a proof of claim with the trustee or receiver as soon as possible.
