On December 21, 2020, CRA launched the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) Employer Search, which allows users to search a listing of 340,000 CEWS applicants.
The results, which are updated daily, display the legal name, operating/trade name, or business number of corporations (other types of entities are not listed) that have been approved for the CEWS. It does not include the amount received or the periods for which CEWS was received. The search database can be found at https://apps.cra-arc.gc.ca/ebci/hacc/cews/srch.
ACTION ITEM: Before applying for the CEWS, ensure that you fully consider the implications of being included on this publicly searchable database.
