Impacts of Changes to the Employment Insurance System

Description 

The federal government proposals to change the EI system will impact labour forces based around seasonal industries – including everyone from women to older workers, etc. Issues specific to seasonal industries are of special concern, including:
- What challenges do fish plant workers face when they are asked to re-train or work in the service sector?
- How does it impact women, including young mothers, especially in the fishery?
- How are other seasonal industries impacted, for example tourism or construction?
- What are the impacts on labour supply for businesses?
