How does earned wage access work in Canada?

Rounding it up

  • Earned wage access (EWA) provides workers with the ability to withdraw earned wages between pay periods.

  • Many employers partner with Fintech companies to provide EWA to their employees.

  • While equipping financial flexibility to users, EWA can also reduce employee turnover.

  • However, users should always be aware of EWA fees, if any.
