Occupational Health and Safety
Safety must be the first priority to avoid incidents and injuries when rebuilding Fort McMurray.
Employment Insurance - Government of Canada
Affected workers are encouraged to apply for Employment Insurance (EI) benefits as soon as possible, even without a Record of Employment.
If you were receiving EI benefits before the evacuation, you should also contact EI as it could affect how you're reporting activity.
The Government of Canada has a reference code to facilitate and accelerate the processing of EI claims for affected workers.
Temporary Foreign Workers
Temporary Foreign Workers who have lost their jobs and have questions should call the TFW Advisory Office at 1-877-944-9955. If you’ve lost work permits or other important documents, contact your country’s consular office.
