OTTAWA, O.N. – To help employers keep and re-hire workers amidst the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Canada has announced that it is implementing the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy.

According to the Government, this important economic measure provides a 75 percent wage subsidy of up to $847 per employee per week, to eligible employers, for up to 12 weeks, preventing further job losses and encouraging employers to re-hire workers previously laid off as a result of COVID-19, retroactive to March 15, 2020.

In addition, to support employers as they prepare to apply for the CEWS, the Federal Government has launched the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy calculator.
