im sure many have gone thru this situation but wanted to reassure my self by asking again :-)
Ive been working with my company in kitchener for five years. Just got recently married. never lived together with my wife. Wife recently got a job in the federal government in ottawa. She tried to get a transfer to kitchener and applied for new jobs here, no luck.
We have decided I am going to voluntarily leave my current job ( in the private sector) and move to ottawa. my company donesnt have any branches on ottawa and obviously i cannot commute.
Reason for my leaving : Government career > Private sector Career
Can i apply for Ei and get benefits while i look for a new job there? Does this justify as Just cause ? this is the excerpt from the service canada website
'Individuals who are married or in a common-law relationship sometimes have to move when one of them is transferred or obtains employment in another place, requiring the other person to leave their job. In these cases, it must be determined whether the person had other reasonable alternatives, such as requesting a transfer or commuting between the new place of residence and the work site that might have made it possible for them to keep their job.'
