Canada Recovery Hiring Program

Budget 2021 introduced the new Canada Recovery Hiring Program (CRHP). This new program provides eligible employers with a subsidy of up to 50 percent on the incremental remuneration paid to employees between June 6, 2021, and November 20, 2021.

Eligible employers can claim either the CRHP or the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) for a particular period, but not both.
The filing deadline is 180 days after the end of the qualifying period.


Qualification


Eligible employers include Canadian-controlled private corporations (CCPCs), individuals, non-profit organizations, registered charities, and certain partnerships. Employers qualify for this program if they have a drop in revenue, which is to be computed the same way as it is computed for the CEWS.

Therefore, the revenue drop must be more than 0 percent for the June 6 – July 3, 2021, qualifying period. The revenue drop must be greater than 10 percent for the qualifying periods between July 4, 2021, and November 20, 2021.
