Dear hotel members,
The federal government today announced a relaxation of the eligibility criteria for the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy program. By clicking on the following link, you will find all the information about the program, including the application process (through the Canada Revenue Agency’s My Business Account portal).
Prime Minister Trudeau announced that the eligibility rules for the 75% wage subsidy would be relaxed. The following is a summary of the announcement:
For the month of March 2020, businesses will be required to demonstrate a 15% decrease in revenues compared to March 2019 instead of the initial 30%;
Businesses will be able to use the months of January and February to demonstrate revenue losses to apply for the grant;
The wage subsidy is available regardless of the size of the business.
The government also announced temporary changes to the Canada 2020 Summer Jobs Program:
Ottawa will be able to subsidize up to 100% of the salaries of students hired through this program;
The student’s termination date will be extended to February 28, 2021;
Employers will be able to tailor projects or work activities to support essential services;
Employers will be able to hire part-time staff.
However, it is important to consider that this new program must be legislated in the Canadian Parliament. Parliament should call back the elected officials to sit in the next few days to pass the legislation.  Once the bill has been passed by the members of Parliament, it will have to be passed by the Senate and finally receive royal assent in order to become effective. From then on, there will be a two to three week delay for its official implementation.
Our partner, the Hotel Association of Canada, also lists on its web page federal assistance for our businesses. We encourage you to visit it through the following link. You will also find applications submitted to the federal government to help our hotel industry.

On a more personal note, I would like to sincerely thank you for your response in such large numbers to our call this Monday. In spite of the hardships, you have mobilized as never before and have demonstrated that every day.

Xavier Gret
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
Quebec Hotel Association
