Can you get Canadian EI when moving from the US to Canada?

I thought I saw a thread just now about getting covered by Canadian EI when you move from Canada to the US until you get a job (for a limited time). 

 

So when I move I can apply for EI from Canada? 

 

Can someone tell me more about this or where to find more info?

 

Thanks!

Theres a particular reason.  So mine was family reunification.  I had to move to join my spouse.  I dont know how it will work for an F3.

Yes to both. 

I applied before I left Canada using my US address. After arrival i needed to call the international line and provide information.  If you arrive on K1 you cannot get EI until you have your EAD but you should still apply within 4 weeks of leaving your job.  You still have to do weekly check ins.

Thank you! I will be CR1. I’m just here in Canada with temporary work visa. Eligible for PR but did not apply anymore. When I leave TO, I am going to leave for good and close my bank account here. I wonder if they will be able to deposit to my US bank when the time comes or send me a cheque instead? Did you receive EI weekly or monthly? 

 

Also what is weekly check ins 😬

No has to be Canadian account with canadian funds.  Not sure how it works if you are a PR vs citizen.   Its every 2 weeks.
