Employment Insurance (E.I.)

If you are unemployed and looking for work you may be able to get EI benefits. EI benefits are based on the number of hours you worked during a certain "qualifying period". Usually, your qualifying period is the past 12 months.

Call the Legal Clinic if you...

  • Have you been turned down for EI and want to appeal the decision?
  • EI has said you have to pay back money you have already received?
