COVID-19 wage and hiring support for businesses

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

For each applicable claim period, eligible employers can claim one of the following, whichever gives the highest amount:

  • Tourism and Hospitality Recovery Program (THRP) – Wage
    Effective: October 24, 2021, to May 7, 2022
  • Hardest-Hit Business Recovery Program (HHBRP) – Wage
    Effective: October 24, 2021, to May 7, 2022
  • Canada Recovery Hiring Program (CRHP)
    Effective: June 6, 2021, to May 7, 2022
  • Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS)
    Effective: March 15, 2020, to October 23, 2021

Many of the eligibility and calculation rules for the wage subsidy under the THRP and the HHBRP are the same as they were for the CEWS.

Next deadline

  • January 27, 2022: Last day to apply for period 18 of the CEWS and CRHP

Next period opens

  • Claim period 24 will be open for applications in February. Details on the exact date will be available soon.
