September 14, 2015 Gatineau, Quebec Canada Employment Insurance Commission
The Canada Employment Insurance Commission (CEIC) today made public the Employment Insurance (EI) Maximum Insurable Earnings (MIE) level for 2016, along with rates for EI premiums, the Quebec Parental Insurance Plan (QPIP) and the Premium Reduction Program. The CEIC is responsible for preparing reports on all elements of premium rate-setting, including the MIE.
The MIE and premium rates are included in the report of the Chief Actuary on the Employment Insurance Premium Rate, and in the CEIC’s summary of that report. The summary report is available at http://www.esdc.gc.ca/en/reports/ei/index.page. To ensure continued transparency and accountability in the rate-setting process, these reports must be made available to the public by September 14 of every year, as mandated by the Employment Insurance Act.
The CEIC is a tripartite organization, representing the interests of workers, employers, and government. The Commissioner for Workers and the Commissioner for Employers are appointed by the Governor in Council for terms of up to five years. They are mandated to represent and reflect the views of their respective constituencies.
