Important Information that you must know

You must do your application for EI on-line, there is a long and short form, which form you complete depends upon the type of application.   If you have a reference number you complete the short form.  If you don’t have  a reference number fill in the long form. You can also do EI reporting on-line. If you fail to follow procedure, EI or SUB will not pay for weeks of layoff. If you dont qualify for EI you are ineligible to collect SUB.  If you receive earning while on layoff, all earning are to be reported to EI except SUB benefits.  If you had previously booked vacation for this time, be sure to have your supervisor put through a cancellation.  All EI claims run for one (1) full year from your first week off. Layoffs, S&A or WSIB can all be used for your waiting periods. It is very important that you keep good records and report your claim in a timely manner, use the reporting calendar to keep track.  If you have any problems or need assistance call  Brad Isherwood or stop in at the Union Hall.

E.I. Application On Line

At the time of writing, we are expecting temporary layoffs. The following is what is expected so your claims will go through smoothly. You may file your claim on the Friday of your last day worked. Below is a step by step guide to assist you in filing your claim. If you choose to come to the Union Hall, we will be happy to assist with filing your claim daily from Monday through Friday (8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.). Your application must be completed within 28 days of your last day worked, or the E.I. office may not accept your application as it will be deemed late. This could lead to you becoming disqualified from an E.I. benefit, which in turn would result in the loss of any SUB benefit payable. Applications can be filed online by going to the Service Canada Website.  To receive your E.I. benefits, you must go back online once your claim is set up to file reports every two weeks, even if you are only serving a new waiting period.
