For Service Canada, the Record of Employment (ROE) is the most important document in its employment insurance (EI) program. It helps the federal government determine who qualifies for EI benefits, how much they should be paid and for how long. 


Employers and payroll departments play a key role in the ROE process. According to Service Canada, more than one million Canadian employers complete more than nine million ROEs for employees each year. Mistakes in completing or filing an ROE can result in delays in processing benefit payments or in payment errors.
