To Complete an Application Online go to:


Once on the Service Canada Website click “English” then once on the appropriate page click on “Apply for Employment Insurance” 

Note: Should you have problems finding the web page, do a “Google” search for “Application for Employment Insurance Benefits Online”. Once you have found the appropriate page, prior to starting your E.I. Application you should know or have:

  1. Required personal information for the EI application

You will be asked for, and should have on hand, your Social Insurance Number, the correct spelling of your Mother’s maiden name (last name upon her birth) and any banking information for direct deposit purposes, this is optional and only necessary if the information  has changed since last in receipt of benefits, or if not set up with Service Canada.

  1. Required employment information for the EI application

The Ford Motor Company of Canada will submit a Record of Employment (ROE) electronically to Service Canada on your behalf; therefore you do not need to request copies from the Ford Motor Company.

  1. Reactivating or terminating a previous EI claim

If you already have started and established an Employment Insurance claim for benefits within the past 52 weeks and there are weeks still payable, that claim will automatically be reactivated when you complete the EI application online.

  1. The Privacy Notice Statement / start your EI application
