Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy


What is 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 employer wages, retroactive to March 15th, 2020. The subsidy will enable you to re-hire workers, hire new workers, help prevent further job losses, and ease back into normal operations.

Eligible employers must apply in “Periods”. The rules are not consistent across periods and are complex. It is recommended that employers seek professional assistance in calculating their eligibility and submitting their applications, as errors or inappropriately obtained benefits may have serious consequences. BizWize is here to help you navigate the CEWS application process and avoid potentially costly errors. 

How to Apply for CEWS
