All four Canadian political parties have applied for the federal wage subsidy implemented by the Trudeau government to cover 75 percent of wages during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to CTV, the Liberals, NDP, Conservatives and Green parties have all applied for the CEWS after ceasing all in-person fundraising since March.

"The NDP filed their application on Friday, and shortly after the Liberal Party of Canada, Conservative Party of Canada and Green Party of Canada confirmed they had already applied and received funding to allow them to keep paying their employees’ salaries after seeing political donations dry up," CTV reports.

“Like many Canadians, organizations, and not-for-profits, COVID-19 measures are having an impact on our team, party, and operations, and we’re doing our best to adjust to this new reality. This has meant incurring unexpected expenses that ensures our staff have the ability and technology to work remotely for an extended period,” said Conservative spokesperson Cory Hann.

Liberal spokesperson Braeden Caley told CTV “As a party, our main focus ever since has been to communicate the key information and announcements that Canadians need to get through this difficult time together.”

Earlier today, it was reported that the NDP had applied for the CEWS. CTV learned afterward that the other major parties had also applied.
