Service Canada to discontinue some ROE Web formats

OTTAWA — Service Canada says it will discontinue several ROE Web formats next year in an effort to standardize its ROE Web file versions.

As of Mar. 31, 2016, Service Canada will no longer accept the 27-week flat file, the 53-week flat file, the 53-week XML file version 1.0 and the 27-week online form. It says it will stop accepting the formats as of Dec. 31, but will allow for a three-month grace period, to the end of March.
