The Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) provides employers who have been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis with a wage subsidy of up to 75% of employee wages. The program aims to encourage employers to re-hire workers who have been laid off, while preventing future job losses and easing the transition back to normal operations after the crisis. This workshop will provide an overview of the CEWS program, with a particular focus on the following areas:
- Claim periods and program duration
- Employer eligibility criteria
- Subsidy calculation
- Interactions with other benefit programs
- Application process
