COVID-19 Update: Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (“CEWS”) Program to be Extended to December 2020
During a press conference on July 13, 2020, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that the CEWS will be extended to December 2020. While no further particulars were provided in respect of the extension, the Prime Minister indicated that a formal announcement would be forthcoming this week. Our colleagues discuss the extension announcement in our McCarthy Tétrault Tax Perspectives blog here.
We are continuing to monitor these and other changes to the CEWS Program. Watch our COVID-19 Recovery Hub and our McCarthy Tétrault Employer Advisor Blog for further updates. In the interim, if you are an employer and have any questions about the CEWS Program or other COVID-19 workplace matter, please contact any member of our National Labour & Employment Group.
