Let’s talk about Employment Insurance caregiving benefits
Presenter: Shelley Pennington, Cancer Care Social Worker and a representative from Service Canada.
When a cancer patient needs care and support at home, family members or friends often step up to help. In order to provide care and support, it may be necessary for the caregiver to stop working which adds to financial burden. It is important for healthcare professionals to know the latest about new and enhanced government programs. Let’s talk with a knowledgeable Service Canada representative who will inform us about eligibility criteria, how different EI benefits work together and answer questions about caregiving benefits.
