Canada Recovery Hiring Program (CRHP)

As an employer in Canada who has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, you may be eligible to apply for a subsidy to cover part of your wages as you hire new employees and increase existing employees' wages or hours.

There are no claim periods for the wage and rent subsidies after May 7, 2022. However, you can still apply for open claim periods until their deadlines have passed.

Each claim period, eligible employers can claim either the higher of the CRHP, or the wage portion of:

  • the Tourism and Hospitality Recovery Program (THRP), or
  • the Hardest-Hit Business Recovery Program (HHBRP)

Before October 24, 2021, eligible employers could claim either the CRHP or the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS).
