Service Canada

As of January 6th, 2013, the Conservative government has made new rules for EI recipients in a program they call Connecting Canadians with Available Jobs. They have made some stricter rules around what is considered suitable employment and a reasonable job search. The rules now depend on your claimant category: long-tenured worker, frequent claimant, or occasional claimant. Please see the following website for more information.
