The Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) Program will be extended until August 29, 2020.
Eligibility criteria has also been expanded to include limited partnership ownership structures. This includes partnerships that are up to 50% owned by non-eligible hotels and partnerships where the partners are Indigenous governments.
The government has also signaled their intention to include seasonal and temporary foreign workers in CEWS. Assuming that hotels can take advantage of the summer season and seasonal workers are indeed required, it appears as they would now be covered under the program as well. More details to come.
