Canada Recovery Hiring Program (CRHP)

OTTAWA: Gerald Soroka, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, wishes to advise the launching of an online calculator to help eligible employers prepare their CRHP applications. This calculator integrates the new CRHP with the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS), automatically showing applicants which subsidy will provide them with more support, based on the information they enter.
The CRHP and the CEWS are both based on four-week claim periods. From June 6, 2021 to September 25, 2021 (claim periods 17 to 20), the subsidies overlap so that, as CEWS rates gradually decline, eligible employers would still be able to receive support through the CRHP if they hire more workers or increase workers’ hours or wages.
For the four overlapping claim periods, eligible employers can apply for either subsidy, based on whichever subsidy provides the higher amount of support. An eligible employer must claim the greater of the CRHP and the CEWS for a particular claim period, but not both.
Eligible employers will be able to apply for the CRHP as of July 7, 2021, when the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will open applications through My Business Account and Represent a Client. The CRA will begin to issue CRHP payments to eligible employers during the week of July 12, 2021.
