Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy Feedback & Summary of Outstanding COVID–19 Tax Issues

Over the last few weeks, the Canadian Tax Foundation has been actively collaborating with other stakeholders to raise issues and suggestions relating to tax aspects of the economic response to the  COVID-19 pandemic. We have been updating our website and sharing responses from government through various channels as information becomes available. Thanks again to all of our members and others in the business and tax community for your input.

The two documents below, which were jointly prepared by CPA Canada and the Foundation, summarize the questions that have been shared with the tax authorities about the Canada Employment Wage Subsidy (CEWS) and the outstanding COVID-19 tax issues outside of the CEWS program.  We have recently updated the second document to reflect input received as of May 28 and and will continue to update both documents as more information becomes available.  A French version of each will follow.
