Federal Update: Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy Extension

 

The Government of Canada is extending the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy program (CEWS) by three more months – until end of August – in order to help employers keep their workers on payroll.

 

The CEWS program covers 75 per cent of an eligible company’s payroll, up to a maximum of $847 per week per employee.

 

The federal government has broadened the eligibility for this benefit and asked companies to bring back their employees.
