Employment insurance ("EI") and income assistance are two of the pillars of Canada's social safety net. Persons engaged in insurable employment can obtain EI benefits for a limited time if they become unemployed and meet all other eligibility requirements. They may also obtain income assistance once their eligibility for EI has expired, as may those who were not eligible for EI in the first place.
This title provides a succinct overview of the general principles that apply to the federal employment insurance regime, and the unique income assistance programs that exist in each province and territory.
