Earlier this month, the Canadian Taxpayers Federation issued a new report calling for changes to the Employment Insurance (EI) system that would allow Canadians to keep the money they and their employers pay in EI taxes in a personal unemployment account. Report author Nick Bergamini, the CTF’s Research Director, joins CTF B.C. Director and Tax Talk host Jordan Bateman to break down the current EI system, highlight some shocking regional inequities, and lay out the CTF’s idea to revamp it.
