Service Canada email request
If you are unable to reach EI call centre, there is an alternative way. Service Canada started an eform service. You can send them a message through their online E-form portal.
Service Canada centre agents will call you back to help you follow up on the status of your EI claim. Those agents are not EI processing office agents, they are the Service Canada centre agents who used to work at the local centres.
Once you have submitted your request, they will get back to you through a phone call within 2 business days.
You may reach out to them through Canada.ca website at:

E-form Security Word
For example: “Security word(s): “Presto”. Please provide the security word before asking for my identity on the phone. Thank you”
In this case, you can rest assured that the caller is really from Service Canada and the agent has read your security word(s) message.
