Version of section 77.8 from 2008-12-07 to 2010-10-11:

  •  (1) Pilot Project No. 12 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. 12 applies in respect of every claimant whose benefit period is established or ends in the period beginning on December 7, 2008 and ending on December 4, 2010, and who is ordinarily resident in a region described in Schedule I.

  • (3) For the purpose of Pilot Project No. 12, 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.

  • (4) For greater certainty, this section ceases to have effect on December 4, 2010.
