Employment Insurance

Employment Insurance

EI (Employment Insurance) provides temporary financial assistance for unemployed Canadians while they look for work or upgrade their skills. Canadians who are sick, pregnant or caring for a newborn or adopted child, as well as those who must care for a family member who is seriously ill with a significant risk of death, may also be assisted by EI.

Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) is responsible for providing all Canadians with the tools they need to thrive and prosper in an inclusive labor market. Please visit HRSDC's EI website.

At the Service Canada website, you’ll find Canadian employment opportunities, how to post a job as an employer, information about hiring foreign workers, program and funding opportunities, and work search tools and tips.

You may also complete your EI reports online by going to Online EI Reporting.
If you are experiencing unusually long delays or difficulties in filing your EI claim, contact Kennedy’s office for assistance.

NOTE: If you are filing an appeal to an EI claim decision our office cannot assist with the preparation of the appeal nor intervene in the process.
