Yvon Godin Acadie—Bathurst, NB
moved for leave to introduce Bill C-440, An Act to amend the Employment Insurance Act (pregnancy benefit).
Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to introduce this bill this morning.
This enactment prevents a claimant’s entitlement to benefit for pregnancy or caring for a new born or adoptee being reduced on account of the claimant receiving or having received a benefit for illness or injury.
It also prevents a claimant losing illness or injury benefit because the illness or injury has arisen during a pregnancy or caring period.
