To file a complaint against EI policies, legislation or accessibilities
The best way to bring your concern against existing EI policies is to visit your MP’s office.

You may use the Office of Client Satisfaction online form to express your concerns or by calling EI call centre. Once your complaint has been received, you will receive a call from the local office’s supervisor or manager to assist you further.
