Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy update and FAQ

July 23, 2020
The Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) was introduced by the Federal Government on March 27, 2020 with a view to maximize employment in Canada and to encourage growth. As initially enacted, the CEWS was intended to provide qualified employers who have experienced a significant decline in their revenues with a 75% wage subsidy of up to $847/week per eligible employee.

Since its introduction, there have been several proposed changes to the legislation to address challenges experienced by employers and to enhance access to the program. Deloitte has prepared an FAQ related to some of the most common questions they receive from employers in relation to eligibility and qualifying revenue determinations, and eligible remuneration calculations.
