Maternity Leave Benefits

Justin Trudeau’s third wave is now costing parents their crucial time with their newborn children. As new mothers and pregnant women must reapply for EI maternity leave benefits, they may be forced to return to work within weeks of giving birth should they lack the necessary insurable hours.
