Annex 3.2 – Employment Insurance (EI) Part II – General definitions

Eligibility for Employment Benefits and Support Measures (EBSMs) or similar programs funded under Part II

In FY1920, to be eligible for Employment Benefits, individuals must be unemployed and have a current Employment Insurance (EI) claim as an “active EI client” or a claim that ended in the preceding 5 years as a “former EI client.” Those who began a maternity or parental claim in the preceding 5 years, after which they left the labour market to care for their newborn or newly adopted children, also qualify as former EI clients and are eligible for Employment Benefits upon re-entry into the labour market. In addition, in FY1819, eligibility for Employment Benefits was expanded to include all unemployed individuals who have made EI premium contributions above the premium refund contribution threshold ($2,000 in earnings annually) in at least 5 of the last 10 years. These clients are said to be Premiums Paid Eligible (PPE).

Unemployed individuals who are neither active, former EI clients, nor PPEs are considered “non-insured” and are eligible to participate in Employment Assistance Services (EAS), as well as self-services provided by the National Employment Service. In FY1819, eligibility to EAS was expanded to include employed Canadians.

Labour Market Development Agreements (LMDAs)

LMDAs provide the frameworks within which EBSM delivery takes place. EBSMs are flexible by design, allowing provincial and territorial jurisdictions to develop and deliver programs that respond to local and regional labour market needs. With the implementation of the Canada-Yukon LMDA on February 1, 2010, all provinces and territories are now fully responsible for the design and delivery of programs similar to EBSMs established under Part II of the EI Act. In support of these activities, Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) transfers LMDA funding to the provinces and territories and focuses on accountability, evaluation and ongoing policy development. ESDC also delivers Pan-Canadian programming and maintains, in partnership with the provinces and territories, specific projects and activities in the national interest under Part II of the EI Act. Canada retains responsibility for the delivery of insurance benefits under Part I of the EI Act and for the aspects of labour market development reflective of national interests.

For more information on LMDAs, please refer to: About the Labour Market Development Agreements program.

Apprentices

Apprentices are paid by their employer during periods of practical training. During the classroom portion of their training, apprentices are eligible for regular benefits under Part I of the EI Act. The apprentice requires a referral under the authority of Section 25 of the EI Act to access these benefits. Depending on the regional and local priorities of the province or territory, the apprentice may receive EI Part II support to cover classroom-related expenses.

Indigenous Skills and Employment Training (ISET)

ISET was introduced in April 2019 as the successor to the Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Strategy (ASETS). The program’s objective is to help reduce the skills and employment gaps between Indigenous peoples and non-Indigenous. Co-developed with Indigenous partners, the ISET program includes 4 distinct labour market strategies with separate funding envelopes for each group: First Nations, Inuit, Métis and Urban/Non-affiliated Indigenous peoples. It provides new investments and longer-term, more flexible agreements to Indigenous service delivery organizations. With Indigenous partners, the Government is advancing reconciliation by creating more job training opportunities for Indigenous peoples.

The ISET program offers activities that support a holistic approach to service delivery. The eligible activities encompass a wide range of labour market activities including locally designed programs in support of each distinctions-based labour market strategy. Indigenous service delivery organizations may provide: employment-related and career development assistance; wrap-around supports, such as living expenses; financial assistance to support individuals in obtaining skills for employment; tuition costs; business coaching and mentorship; and disability-related supports.

Job Bank

Job Bank is an Internet service that helps connect employers and workers. It is the largest web-based network of job advertisements across Canada and is available to Canadian employers and job seekers free of charge. See Job Bank.

Annex 3.3 – EBSM program descriptions

Employment benefits

Targeted Wage Subsidies assist insured participants to obtain on-the-job work experience by providing employers with financial assistance toward the wages of participants. This benefit encourages employers to hire unemployed individuals whom they would not normally hire in the absence of a subsidy.

Self-Employment provides financial assistance and business planning advice to eligible participants to help them start their own business. This financial assistance is intended to cover personal living expenses and other expenses during the initial stages of the business.

Job Creation Partnerships projects provide insured participants with opportunities to gain work experience that will lead to ongoing employment. Activities of the project help develop the community and the local economy.

Skills Development helps insured participants to obtain employment skills by giving them direct financial assistance that enables them to select, arrange for and pay for their own training.

Support measures

Employment Assistance Services provide funding to organizations to enable them to provide employment assistance to unemployed and employed persons. The services provided may include individual counselling, action planning, job search skills, job-finding clubs, job placement services, the provision of labour market information, case management and follow-up.

Labour Market Partnerships provide funding to help employers, employee and employer associations, and communities to improve their capacity to deal with human resource requirements and to implement labour force adjustments. These partnerships involve developing plans and strategies, and implementing adjustment measures. Employer-Sponsored Training, which provides funding to eligible employers to re- or up-skill their workers, is a sub-component of this Support Measure.

Research and Innovation supports activities that identify better way of helping people to prepare for or keep employment and to be productive participants in the labour force. Funds are provided to eligible recipients to enable them to carry out demonstration projects and research for this purpose.
