The Canadian government announced the National School Food Program, investing $1 billion over five years to provide meals to an additional 400,000 children annually. This initiative, part of Budget 2024, aims to reduce child poverty and food insecurity, especially in vulnerable communities, and includes significant investments in Indigenous-led food solutions.

Since the Christmas holidays fall under Sunday 25th and Monday (Boxing Day) 26th, the Employment Insurance office will be closed on Monday December 26th and 27th, 2022. If you complete your EI report over the Christmas weekend, you will receive the direct deposit on December 28 or 29th, 2022.

All EI claimants (regular or special benefits) may experience a delay of one or two business days in receiving their Employment Insurance cheques or direct deposit.

Therefore if you have completed your report over the weekend, you may receive your direct deposit payment on Wednesday or Thursday.
