EI – Workers and residents outside of Canada - Overview
People who work outside Canada may be entitled to benefits under Canada's Employment Insurance (EI) program.
If you work outside Canada for a Canadian company or the Canadian government, you're usually covered by EI. You're not insured by the EI program if your job is covered by the country in which you're working.
If you're not sure whether your job is insured under Canada's EI program, ask your employer or call the Canada Revenue Agency at 1-800-959-5525.
