That would explain it. Of course this table is newer than the one that was used when you made your claim, so you really need to look for the stats from the week your claim effectively began. I would think if you were last employed in Alberta then EI is using AB to calculate your EI. It wouldn't make sense to give claimants more weeks of benefits for moving back to an area with higher unemployment after they're laid off (consider the implications).lachdanan wrote: ↑Thanks guys.
@queerasmoi: Actually I don't think I saw in advance how many weeks it was gonna be.
@b166: I just checked from here:
http://www.statcan.gc.ca/tables-tableau ... 2b-eng.htm
Quebec shows 8.6% unemployment rate, so then according to that table you linked, it should be 42 weeks no?
Also I just checked my total hours in my ROE (Cell 15A), and it shows 2150.
EDIT: Although when I opened my claim, I was in AB, which seems to have less than 5%. Is this why? But I didn't get paid several months after I moved to Quebec. Should they not account for this since my address is up to date on my account?
(Experts, any corrections to this?)
