To qualify for EI benefits, you must have an interruption of earnings. Your employer must fill out a Record of Employment (ROE) every time you experience an interruption of earnings.

If you are applying for regular EI benefits, an interruption of earnings happens when you go 7 days without doing any work or getting any pay from your employer.

If you are applying for special benefits, like sickness benefits, maternity or parental benefits, compassionate care benefits, or benefits for parents of critically ill children, an interruption of earnings happens when your normal weekly earnings go down by more than 40%.

An intimate image or video is one that was taken in circumstances that give rise to a reasonable expectation of privacy, and shows the person:

  • naked,
  • exposing their genital region, buttocks, or breasts, or
  • engaged in explicit sexual activity.

It is a criminal offence to publish, distribute, share, or sell intimate images of someone without their consent. In order to be found guilty of this offence, the person in the image must continue to have a reasonable expectation of privacy at the time you commit the offence.

You're an involuntary patient if your doctor signs a "certificate of involuntary admission". This can only happen after your doctor:

  • examines you to confirm you currently have a mental disorder or you have a mental disorder that comes and goes, and
  • believes that your mental disorder will cause serious harm to you or someone else unless you stay in a psychiatric facility.

Only an involuntary patient can be held in a psychiatric facility against their will.

Most court forms that start a court process have to be issued. For example, your Application form has to be issued to start a court case. Your form is issued when the court clerk gives you a court file number and signs, dates, and applies the court seal to the upper left corner of your original form.
