Employment Insurance Regulations

Version of section 77.4 from 2006-03-22 to 2011-06-15:

  •  (1) Pilot Project No. 8 is established for the purpose of testing whether increasing the amount of a claimant’s allowable earnings from employment while the claimant is receiving benefits would encourage more claimants to accept employment while receiving benefits.

  • (2)  Pilot Project No. 8 applies in respect of every claimant who, at the time their benefit period is established, is ordinarily a resident in a region described in Schedule I that is set out in Schedule II.4.

  • (3) For the purpose of Pilot Project No. 8, subsection 19(2) of the Act is adapted such that the maximum allowable earnings shall be

    • (a) $75, if the claimant’s rate of weekly benefits is less than $188; and

    • (b) 40% of the claimant’s rate of weekly benefits, if that rate is $188 or more.
