It's Time to Modernize and Fix EI!

On Tuesday, members of ACORN’s Employment Insurance (EI) Action Group had an informative and animated meeting with EI Commissioner, Pierre Laliberté, in Toronto. The room was packed as members and leaders presented a number of well-thought-out recommendations to address issues with EI and ensure that the process of applying for, and accessing, EI is made fairer and more accessible to low and moderate income earners.

Ontario Budget Response from ACORN Canada President Marva Burnett // Réaction de la présidente d’ACORN Marva Burnett au budget de l’Ontario
