Yes, you can receive Employment Insurance (EI) benefits if you are fired, however, it depends on the circumstances surrounding your termination. While anyone can submit an EI application, eligibility for benefits relies on meeting specific criteria. Individuals who have left their employment voluntarily or have been terminated with just cause may not meet the requirements for EI benefits.

NOTE: Employment Insurance (EI) is a financial protection program administered by the Government of Canada that provides temporary financial assistance to eligible individuals who are unemployed. EI benefits include regular benefits for those who have lost their job through no fault of their own, such as due to layoffs or shortage of work, and are actively looking for employment. Additionally, EI provides special benefits such as sickness benefits, parental leave benefits, maternity benefits, compassionate care benefits, and benefits for caring for critically ill children or adults. The program is funded by premiums paid by employees and employers in Canada.
