Managing work-force challenges

There are times when, as an employer, you may face challenges related to managing your work force, including restructuring your business to remain competitive. We can help you navigate these challenges through the following programs and services.

  • Scheduled and mobile outreach services: Service Canada staff travel to communities across the country on a regular basis (for example, one day per week) or in times of particular need to deliver Service Canada programs and services.
  • Work Force Reduction: This program helps employers who must restructure their businesses and reduce the number of employees.
  • Work-Sharing Program: This program helps employers avoid temporary layoffs when there is a reduction in business activity beyond the employer’s control. Through the program, eligible employees receive EI benefits while working a temporarily reduced work week.
