What prerequisites do you need in order to be able to apply for EI in Canada?
My boyfriend and i are expecting out first child this summer and have discussed ways to support our little family. one idea was that i go on unemployment for the first year to take care of our new born while he works. but i'm not sure if i qualify or how to go about it. do you need to file taxes for a certain number of years? do you need to make or work a certain amount of time? how old do you have to be?
