A partnership led by CLEO
When your job ends, you need a Record of Employment (ROE) to apply for Employment Insurance (EI).
If your employer has not given you an ROE, you can still apply for EI. But you’ll have to give Service Canada a copy of your ROE to keep getting EI.
This tool creates a letter you can send to your employer asking for your ROE.
Read more about getting your ROE.
To use this tool, you’ll need:
After you answer a series of questions, you’ll get an email with the letter to send to your employer.
CLEO does not store your personal information.
If you think it’s not safe to include your own mailing address, enter another address where you can pick up mail. For example, this might be a friend’s house.
Thanks for using the tool. If you don’t see the email in your inbox, check your spam or junk folder.
If you want to change anything and create a new letter, you’ll have to go through the tool again, starting on the first page.
If you send a letter to your employer and they still don’t give you your ROE, you’ll have to fill out this form and send it to Service Canada.
If you need help applying for EI or if you’ve been denied EI, contact your local community legal clinic or the Workers’ Action Centre.
