Information on Changes to Employment Insurance Sickness Benefits

December 2022

People Corporation, an ACEC-Ontario Affinity Ally, is keeping you informed.

To protect Canadians facing illness or injury typically associated with recovery rates longer than 15 weeks, the Government of Canada is extending EI sickness benefits to 26 weeks, starting December 18, 2022. This change is expected to help approximately 169,000 Canadians per year who need more than 15 weeks to return to work after an illness, injury, or quarantine.
