Here is a note that CRA sent out today on the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy and a Q&A call tomorrow, Thursday.  It might be of interest to some groups who don’t know whether they qualify for the CEWS or how to apply for it.

Here are the questions that were posed in the last session: CEWS outreach session for charities with the Charities Directorate April 28, 2020.  Some of them were answered verbally or the answers are in the FAQ, etc.
