EI under Incorporation
My wife and I opened a business corporation 2 years back; there are only 2 directors of that corporation i.e. her and me. Both of us are working as contractors with a bank. Both of us draw monthly salary from the corporation. We were thinking of applying for EI since we are planning to start a family in a few years time and so we were thinking of paying EI premiums till my wife gets pregnant and then claim EI during maternity leave. The only downside is that we will have to continue paying EI premiums all our lives which we are comfortable with as we are taking the advantage as well.
I read on www.canada.ca that we can apply for EI if we are self employed. In our situation (drawing salary from business), will we be considered as "Self Employed"? If not, is there a way to get covered EI? If not, what is the best way we can cover maternity in our situation?
Thanks a lot for your time,
