Employment Insurance August 2015

Ottawa - In August, 7,900 fewer people received regular Employment Insurance (EI) benefits compared with July, down 1.4% to 536,800. On a year-over-year basis, the number of EI beneficiaries increased by 35,600 or 7.1%.

Most of the decrease in August came from Ontario, where the number of beneficiaries declined 3.9%. Smaller declines were recorded in Quebec (-1.9%) and Saskatchewan (-1.1%).

At the same time, the number of beneficiaries increased in Manitoba (+5.8%) and Prince Edward Island (+2.6%), while the remaining provinces reported little change.

The change in the number of regular EI beneficiaries reflects various situations, including people becoming beneficiaries, people going back to work and people no longer receiving regular benefits.
