CRA launches  a “small-scale” audit pilot project

The CRA has launched  a “small-scale” audit program to make sure that successful Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy applicants were in fact eligible and didn’t receive too much money.

As of August 16, $70.0 billion had been paid out under the CERB program, and as of Aug. 19, $29.9 billion under CEWS and $2.7 billion under the CESB.
