I'm going to college for medical office assistant. It's a year long. I have scoliosis and it causes major pain that's why I got the time off from the doctor. My current job as a nursing assistant is really demanding and me having to help lift clients and doing their care really puts a strain on my back. That's why I decided to do office work now.
Chances are very slim you'll get EI. You need to prove that if you weren't sick, you'd be otherwise available for work. You're not proving that if you're in college. So unless you got approved for schooling by your provincial training authority prior to enrolling and/or starting, you shouldn't get benefits

Quit my job over a year ago never received an ROE from my employer. Did some traveling etc. Do you only need an ROE if your applying for unemployment insurance? Does it matter that I don't have an ROE from my last employer? Does an employee have to ask for an ROE or is it sent automatically? Any help would be appreciated thank you.

Yes the ROE is only for EI. If you quit you don't qualify for EI (for the majority of circumstances). Also, the qualifying period for EI is the past 52 weeks. If you haven't worked you would have 0 hours and you wouldn't qualify based on that criteria either.

Thanks for the quick reply! I'm looking for work now, would it make sense for me to go to the unemployment office without an ROE?Technically I'm unemployed without the need for the unemployment insurance. Can the unemployment office help with the job search?

if you quit over an year go, you won't have any hours to establish the claim, even if you quit with just cause.

We already answered this question. Yes you will qualify but you need to submit both ROE.

Thanks guys just to make it clear I don't want unemployment insurance. I quit my job and I'm OK with that. I do need a job now and was wondering if going to the unemployment office would help my job search? Does it matter that I don't have an ROE for my records?

They won't help you find a job. They will direct you to find a job on http://www.jobbank.gc.ca. However, certain in person Service Canada centres have computer access if you do not have access at home.

Thanks friend. I just realized that my unemployment isn't even recorded in the stats for unemployment collected by the government each month. I wonder how many other people do not report they're unemployment......

Question about medical...I applied for it back on April 5th for a badly sprained ankle. I have not heard anything yet. Does it take longer for them to figure out? I should receive something by snail mail, correct? As there is nothing on the Service Canada when I log on and check messages. Thank you!

It's only been 2 weeks. The general processing time to start your claim is about 28 days. There is a 2 week waiting period to start your claim unless you've used up all your paid sick leave immediately before applying for EI.
