Ontario Has Published Regulations Implementing Expanded CEWS Eligibility

May 28, 2020
On May 27, 2020, the federal government published Regulations Amending the Income Tax Regulations (COVID-19 Eligible Entities) which implements previously announced expansions to the types of organizations that are eligible for the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy, or “CEWS”
(please watch our recent FAQ video for background information on the CEWS, and read our recent article for details on the types of entities that can now be eligible for the CEWS). As we have previously discussed on this Resource Centre, all employers that are eligible for the CEWS should strongly consider applying because this 75% wage subsidy can help employers prevent layoffs and recall laid-off employees, and it does not need to be repaid.
