EI jumps 10.6%

Posted by sweens on May 26, 2009

I was catching up on my Employment Insurance (EI) news this afternoon on CBC’s website.  There was a video on some EI statistics that were just released by Statistics Canada.  The statistics were not good either.  EI rose by 10.6% from February to March.

 65,300 more people began collecting EI in March which brought the Canadian total to just above 681,000 people.  CBC was reporting that since the labour market began to deteriorate in October of 2008, March was the highest month for an increase in EI applications.
