EI claims rise for third straight month

Ontario only province to register a decline


Statistics Canada is reporting that the number of Canadians who received regular employment insurance benefits climbed in June for the third month in a row. The overall increase was due to a rise in EI claims in nine provinces—the biggest increases occured in Quebec and New Brunswick—with Ontario being the only region to register a decline in the number of EI claims. The number of beneficiaries is nonetheless down since its June 2009.
