January 31, 2021 is the deadline for application of the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy for Period 1 (based on March 2020 revenue) through to Period 5 (based on July 2020 revenue). This is a friendly reminder that If you would like Catalyst to assist you in the calculation of your CEWS for these periods you will need to contact us by January 10, 2021 to ensure that your applications are completed before the deadline.
 
Please note: Starting with Period 6 (based on August 2020 revenue) the CEWS deadline is 180 days after the ending date for that period.  This means Period 6 is due February 25, 2021 with subsequent periods due every 28 days thereafter.

Reminder of what it is: A wage subsidy program offered by the Federal government to qualifying employers. The main purpose of the CEWS is for employers to keep employees on payroll during COVID-19.
