Proposed Increase To EI Premiums: A Burden On Business

Canadian Chamber of Commerce Report
The Canadian Chamber wrote to Minister Flaherty to express its deep concern over reports that the government may be called upon to permit the maximum allowable increase to Employment Insurance (EI) premiums – 15 cents/$100 for employees and 21 cents/$100 for employers—to come into effect in January 2011 after a two-year freeze. Such an increase would have significant negative implications for the 420 chambers of commerce and boards of trade across Canada that are members of the Canadian Chamber network and for the 192,000 businesses they represent.
