CEWS (Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy) Deadline Reminder

Share This Post

January 31st, 2021 is the first hard deadline for the CEWS program!

If you plan to file CEWS application for qualifying periods 1 to 5, they are due by end of day January 31, 2021 to be eligible.   In addition, it is also the deadline to amend certain elections made under the CEWS legislation for those same periods.

The deadline for the remainder of the qualifying periods is 180 days from the final day of the respective period.   Note that the application deadline for each period is also the deadline to amend any elections related to that same period.

A good way to ensure you do not miss these important dates is to set reminders in your calendars for a few days before each deadline so that you remember.

Please see the chart below for dates relating to all the currently announced qualifying periods for CEWS:
