Guide to Canadian Maternity Leave

It’s Mat Leave Monday! I know that I promised I was totally done with that, but I’m re-visiting it this week. After all, this is my blog and so I reserve the right to make the rules up as I go along. I’m totally fun that way. Totally.

The reason that I’m re-visiting Mat Leave Monday is that my fancy schmancy guide to maternity leave is now available, thanks be to Bob. It’s a brief, completely non-authoritative guide to maternity leave (and parental leave) in Canada. It’s pretty! It has pictures and a flow chart! So how can it help you?

  • It explains how maternity and parental leave work in Canada.
  • It outlines who qualifies for maternity and parental benefits, and who doesn’t.
  • It includes a flow chart and links to help you plan your leave.
  • It explains when and how to apply for EI.
  • It incorporates the phrase ‘show me the money’, which really never gets old.
  • It includes some fun facts about maternity and parental leave.
  • Here is a very exciting excerpt from the guide:

    You can travel while you’re collecting maternity and parental benefits, just be sure to let Service Canada know if you’re leaving the country.

    Exciting, right? I bet you can’t wait to read more!

    To get the guide, click on the pretty, pretty button in this post and you will be taken to a page to enter your email address. You will receive a confirmation email, and once you confirm your email address the guide will be delivered to your inbox. Then, once a month or so you will receive totally riveting emails outlining what I’m up to. If you don’t want to receive these emails, you can unsubscribe at any time.

    So, please, download the guide, read it, and let me know if you have any questions or comments. I put a lot of work into this, I need someone to justify that by downloading my guide. Did I mention it’s pretty? Because it is. You might want to get it just for that. 🙂

    I love comments! If yours doesn't appear immediately, it was caught by my spam filter. Drop me a line and I'll rescue it.
