The Parti Québécois, elected in the province’s September election, promised to fight to bring employment insurance back under provincial control during its campaign.

Party leader Pauline Marois said the province needed a Quebec system of EI for its unemployed in a translated news release from the campaign period.

Right now it’s just a campaign promise that would need to be followed up on and legislated before it becomes something payroll professionals need to administer.
