Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS)

If you missed the deadline for a claim period, you may now ask us to review your late request to apply for the subsidy (or increase your previously-claimed subsidy amount) under certain circumstances. You have a limited time to send a late request, and you must contact us first to see if you qualify.

What to do if you missed a claim period deadline

On April 19, 2021, the Government announced their proposed budget which includes extending the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy.

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.
