Canada Recovery Hiring Program (CRHP) question & answer session
July 15 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
With the recently announced Canada Recovery Hiring Program (CRHP), hard-hit businesses will be able to hire the workers they need to recover as local economies reopen. The CRHP supports payroll as businesses grow, whether it’s related to hiring staff, increasing shifts, or increasing overall pay.
The CRHP and the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) both support the payroll of eligible employers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, while the CEWS was designed to help eligible employers keep their employees on their payroll during the worst of the pandemic, the CRHP is designed to encourage businesses to (re)hire and grow as the economy recovers.
The CRHP is designed to interact with the CEWS. From June 6, 2021 to September 25, 2021, the subsidies overlap so that, as CEWS rates gradually decline, eligible employers would still be able to receive support from the CRHP if they hire more workers or increase workers’ hours or wages. Eligible employers will be able to apply for either of the two subsidies, based on whichever subsidy will provide the higher amount of support.
Please visit the CRHP web pages for detailed information about eligibility requirements, how payment periods are structured, and how the CRHP is calculated.
To complement these resources, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will host an interactive question and answer session for eligible employers.
