Charities and giving – CRA: Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) question & answer teleconference

Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) question & answer teleconference

The Government of Canada recently implemented changes to adapt the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy to protect jobs and promote growth.

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is committed to providing employers – including those who can now benefit as a result of the enhanced CEWS – with the information and resources they need to apply and benefit from this important economic measure.

The CRA will shortly publish a number of online resources, including updated Frequently asked questions, to help eligible employers understand how to apply and take advantage of this fiscal measure. To complement these resources, the CRA will host a series of interactive question and answer sessions for eligible employers and stakeholder organizations.
