I have a similar question. I currently have a permanent job in which i have worked for more than a year. I am thinking of quitting this permanent to take up a temporary 3 month fulltime job offer . There is a very minute chance of the job getting extended. After the end of this 3 months would I still be eligible for EI if I cant find any other job or the job doesn't get extended?

is it because i will not have enough hours in the new job?( the new job is not a contract and EI contribution will be cut from my pay ) I thought EI calculations are made based on 12 month window, isn't it?

It's because quitting a permanent job for a short term temporary job won't be deemed just cause. You're essentially creating your own unemployment by switching to such a temporary position.
