Canada’s System on Employment Insurance Consultation – July 4, 2016

Canada’s System on Employment Insurance Consultation

July 4, 2016

I encourage interested individuals and organizations to participate in the recently announced consultation on Canada’s system of Employment Insurance (EI).

The Liberal  Federal Government announced that over the course of the summer it would open up a consultation process to review the quality of service that Canadians are receiving when it comes to EI as part of a review of the EI program as a whole. The review will examine how Service Canada administers the EI program. Three key areas that will be focused on are:

  1. Streamlining applications
  2. Reducing wait times for service delivery
  3. Reducing administrative burden for employers

Those wishing to submit their views on the online consultation portal can do so at:

https://hrsdc-rhdcc.sondages-surveys.ca/s/employment-insurance_assurance-emploi/?l=en

You can also send your feedback by e-mail to consultation@servicecanada.gc.ca.

The consultation process will be open until August 31st, 2016.

A summary report of the feedback received during this time will be released in fall 2016.
