Canada - Changes to deductions from government income: The federal Department of Finance published legislative proposals which, if implemented, would temporarily allow Employment Insurance (EI) recipients to deduct eligible expenses against their EI income for the purpose of determining their eligibility for the Child Care Expense Deduction and Disability Supports Deduction for 2020 and 2021 only. This change is intended to provide the same treatment to recipients of EI that is provided to recipients of the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) and other federal COVID‑19 benefits.
