Visit Revenu Québec for more information about the Quebec Parental Insurance Plan, as the two regimes are independent and have separate requirements.


Canada releases its EI rates each year in the fall. There is one rate for Quebec and another for all other provinces and territories. For the latest rates, go to EI premium rates and maximums.


The employer EI premium rate is not affected by the province of employment. The employer rate is 1.4 times the employee premium, unless the employer qualifies for a reduced rate.
