Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS)

A proposal has been made to continue the CEWS until October 2021, including possible changes to the rates as of claim period 20. Read the July 30 announcement and check back soon for details.

As a Canadian employer who has seen a drop in revenue during the COVID-19 pandemic, you may be eligible for a subsidy to cover part of your employee wages. This subsidy will enable you to re-hire workers, help prevent further job losses, and ease your business back into normal operations.
