(10%) Temporary Wage Subsidy

This is a temporary three-month subsidy program that will allow eligible employers to reduce the amount of payroll taxes submitted to the CRA.


This subsidy is 10% of the remuneration you pay between March 18, 2020 to June 19, 2020 up to $1,375 per eligible employee and to a maximum of $25,000 per company.


NOTE: The 10% Wage Subsidy will need to be subtracted from your CEWS submission, if you apply for both subsidies.
