The federal government announced new, stricter rules for collecting Employment Insurance. It put new definitions on what constitutes "suitable employment" and what the unemployed must do to find a job in order to get off E-I. Human Resources Minister Diane Finley said Canadians on E-I would be required to accept available work, which would always earn them more than their benefits. The changes meant Canadians would be treated differently depending on how often they have collected E-I benefits in the past, or how long they are currently receiving benefits.
