Local NDP MP Niki Ashton says it’s time to improve employment insurance sick benefits. Ashton and her NDP colleagues called on the federal government to increase sickness benefits from 15 to 50 weeks. Ashton said that they added their voices to Marie Helene Dube who started the petition “15 weeks to heal is not enough”


More than a third of Canadians who claim EI need more than the 15 weeks maximum currently offered.


Thousands of people across the country are in need of these benefits and Ashton says the government cannot ignore them.
