Employment Insurance in Canada – 63.9% of the unemployed had contributed in 2018

In 2018, about 1.1 million Canadians were unemployed at some point in the year. Of these, 63.9% (709,000) had contributed to the Employment Insurance (EI) program.

Among those who had contributed to EI and also had a valid job separation, 87.4% had accumulated enough insurable hours to be eligible to receive regular EI benefits, up 3.1 percentage points from 84.3% in 2017. This rise in the EI eligibility rate was driven by an increase among youth aged 15 to 24.
