Canada / EI ‘Reform’ / Atlantic premiers name panel to study Ottawa’s changes

Atlantic Canada’s premiers have appointed a four-member panel to review Ottawa’s changes to employment insurance.

A member from each of the four provinces will sit on the panel to be led by University of Moncton economist Pierre-Marcel Desjardins.

The other members include Nova Scotia labour union leader Danny Cavanaugh, Ian MacPherson of the Prince Edward Island Fisherman’s Association and Iris Petten, the chairwoman for Memorial University’s Board of Regents.

The panel is to conduct its work through the summer in preparations for consultations in September and is expected to file a final report in October.

The premiers want Ottawa to suspend its changes to EI, saying there should be further study of the federal program’s new rules that were implemented in January because they adversely affect the region’s seasonal-based economy.
