The first step is: take a deep breath.
If you’ve been employed in Canada and recently lost your job, Employment Insurance (EI) is a government program that can help you keep the lights on while you look for something new. EI is also often used by new parents taking time off work and people who need time off work to care for someone with a critical illness or injury. If you’re worried about the application process, be assured that while it’s not always painless, it’s not as difficult as you might think.
