Government of Canada launches updated Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy Calculator to support employers
“The CRA has been working around the clock to deliver the Government of Canada’s COVID-19 response plan and the results have been outstanding. The Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy has enabled employers across the country to keep or re-hire millions of Canadians. The enhanced CEWS program launched today was redesigned to be more flexible and support a wider range of employers. I encourage all business owners to use the calculator to determine how this program can benefit them.”
- The Honourable Diane Lebouthillier, Minister of National Revenue
To date the CEWS has provided $26.58B in subsidies to more than 275,000 employers. The CRA publishes detailed data about CEWS claims on our website on a regular basis.
The CRA’s dedicated CEWS number 1-833-966-2099 offers access to agents who can provide information about eligibility requirements, calculating the CEWS, or how to apply. The line operates from Monday to Friday, from 9:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. local time.
Employers can make changes or adjustments to their applications, even after they’ve been submitted. More information is available on the CEWS web page.
