moved for leave to introduce Bill C-366, An Act to amend the Employment Insurance Act (pregnancy benefit).

Mr. Speaker, this is another good bill. It prevents a claimant's entitlement to benefit for pregnancy or caring for a newborn or adoptee being reduced on account of the claimant receiving or having received a benefit for illness or injury.

The bill also prevents a claimant losing illness or injury benefit because the illness or injury has arisen during a pregnancy or caring period.
