We’ll come together on Zoom, review the current state of affairs for EI, call our Members of Parliament and then plan our next steps in the fight to fix Employment Insurance.
At the start of COVID, the federal government relaxed Employment Insurance eligibility to improve access to emergency support for those most in need. Without these supports, it would have been much worse for workers and their families due to the COVID closures, lockdowns and layoffs. Statistics Canada has verified the dramatic, positive impact these changes had on improving workers’ access to EI.
