Bill would implement proposed small business EI tax credit

Federal Finance Minister Joe Oliver has tabled legislation to implement a proposed employment insurance (EI) tax credit that would effectively lower EI premiums for eligible small businesses in 2015 and 2016.

Oliver introduced Bill C-43, the Economic Action Plan 2014, No. 2, in Parliament on Oct. 23. At press time, the bill had not yet passed. It would implement provisions proposed in this year’s federal
budget, as well as other measures such as the EI change.
