We are aware of many individuals and companies offering “help” with writing wage subsidy applications. Some of them even claim that they already have approved cases even though the intake has not started yet. Here are the reasons why you should consider FGW as your trusted application writer.

  • Trusted partner with 7 years of experience in government funding applications writing. You need a partner with expertise, not someone who happens to have access to your payroll.
  • Program complexity. The Emergency Wage Subsidy is not as easy as it seems. Review the program rules and decide for yourself.
  • Maximum benefits. Our deep understanding of the program will help you get the most out of it.
  • Fair fees. We will not take advantage of fellow Canadians in trouble and offer fair and reasonable fee for wage subsidy applications.

Please visit the Anti-Crisis Solution page now and fill the form on the right hand side if you need help to determine which option is right for you or your clients, partners or suppliers.

Please stay at home if you can. We will get through this together. Our team is fully available.
