EI Fishing benefits - Overview

1. Overview

Employment Insurance (EI) provides fishing benefits to qualifying, self-employed fishers1 who are actively seeking work. Unlike regular EI benefits, eligibility for EI fishing benefits is based on earnings, not insurable hours of employment.

Fishers may be eligible to receive regular fishing benefits as well as sickness, maternity, parental, compassionate care and/or parents of critically ill children benefits.
