Eligible applicants can receive a subsidy rate of up to 75 per cent. Qualifying conditions include an average monthly revenue reduction of at least 40 per cent over the first 13 CEWS claim periods and a current month revenue decline also measuring 40 per cent or more.
Hardest-Hit Business Recovery Program – provides support to other organizations through wage and rent subsidies of up to 50 per cent. Qualifying conditions include an average monthly revenue reduction of at least 50 per cent over the first 13 CEWS claim periods and a current month revenue decline also measuring 50 per cent or more.
Additional support measures announced include:
- Increasing the monthly cap on eligible rent expenses that can be claimed
