Employment Insurance (EI)

WCLS provides services to employees or former employees who want to apply for, have applied for, or have received Employment Insurance benefits.  Services are provided by WCLS staff and Toronto East End Employment Law Services (TEELS). Together, WCLS and TEELS offer legal services related to all types of EI benefits, including regular benefits, maternity benefits, and sickness benefits. 

Examples of Employment Insurance issues we may help with:   

  • You are having difficulty applying for Employment Insurance

  • You were denied Employment Insurance benefits

  • You received Employment Insurance benefits in the past but have now been told you were overpaid and owe a debt to the government

  • You have a hearing at the Social Security Tribunal about Employment Insurance

We do not distribute or complete EI applications.  You can make an application for EI from Service Canada in person or online.
