CERS claim period numbering

Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy (CERS) claim periods 1 to 14 did not match the claim period dates for the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS).

  • Claim periods 1 to 14: CERS started with claim period 1 on September 27, 2020, and ended with claim period 14 on October 23, 2021. These claim periods correspond with CEWS claim periods 8 through 21.
  • Claim periods 15 to 21: There are no claim period numbers 15 through 21 for rent subsidies.
  • Claim periods 22 to 28: Starting on October 24, 2021, the rent subsidy claim period numbers align with the wage subsidies. The first claim period for rent subsidies under the Tourism and Hospitality Recovery Program (THRP) and the Hardest-Hit Businesses Recovery Program (HHBRP) was period 22.
