Wage Top-up Program Extended
The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) has extended the wage top-up program for an additional eight weeks to match the federal extension of the Canada Emergency Relief Benefit (CERB) to October 3, 2020. Businesses can immediately apply for temporary funding to top-up employees’ wages from April to $18/hour.
This program has been made possible because of the federal government’s contribution of $4.74 million. This will help provide monetary assistance to all lower-wage workers. This program will also offer a taxable benefit for employees.
