EI before I leave...

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey! I got laid off from my last job at the beginning of September due to lack of work. I have since applied for EI and am waiting on a response. My interview is next month and the plan is to leave to the US at the start of January. I have been applying for jobs although have not gotten any callbacks yet. Am I allowed to go on EI or is that considered bad since I am planning on leaving the country? I have enough hours to qualify but I just want to make sure everything I'm doing is legal. I did my first two reports and reported there were some days I was unavailable to work and will continue to do so when I have to travel to Montreal...do I have to let them know I am currently in the process of getting a US Visa? 

Thanks! :)

Lol yes you can if you are relocating to be with family.
