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 paid employees. This subsidy helps you to re-hire workers, 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

  • Canada Recovery Hiring Program (CRHP)
    Effective: June 6, 2021, to May 7, 2022
