COVID-19 wage and hiring support for businesses

Periods you can apply for

How claim periods work

Each claim period is a specific period of 4 weeks, beginning on a Sunday.

The wage and hiring subsidies do not renew automatically. Each period, you must confirm that you're eligible and calculate your amount according to that period's rules before you apply.

There is a deadline to apply or increase your claim for each period.

Claim period numbering

The claim period numbering relates to when a program started.

  • Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) was one of the first wage subsidies and CEWS starts with claim period 1 (March 15, 2020).
  • Because Canada Recovery Hiring Program (CRHP) started at the same time as CEWS claim period 17 (June 6, 2021), the first period you can claim CRHP is 17.
  • Because the Tourism and Hospitality Recovery Program (THRP) and the Hardest-Hit Businesses Recovery Program (HHBRP) started at the same time as CRHP claim period 22 (October 24, 2021), the first period you can claim THRP or HHBRP is 22.

Current claim period

Period 28 includes CRHP, THRP and HHBRP.

If you are eligible, this period is open for application.
