Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS)




As a Canadian employer who has seen a drop in revenue due to COVID-19, you may be eligible for a subsidy to cover part of your employee wages, retroactive to March 15. This subsidy will enable you to re-hire workers, help prevent further job losses, and ease you back into normal operations.

Eligible Applicants

Even if you didn’t have a payroll account on March 15, you may still qualify if:
