About the Record of Employment on the Web

Record of Employment on the Web (ROE Web) is a secure, Web-based application that enables you to create, submit, amend, and print 53-week ROEs electronically. It was launched in 2003 in response to a long-standing request from the employer community to facilitate the ROE production process. It is the most efficient way to issue ROEs.

Service Canada encourages all businesses to issue electronic ROEs. More than 70% of all ROEs are now submitted electronically.

You can benefit in many ways from using ROE Web:

  • Save time and increase productivity
  • Increase filing flexibility
  • Improve the quality and accuracy of ROEs
  • Reduce paper burden
  • Help your employees get quicker Employment Insurance payments.

Can I use ROE Web?

ROE Web is available to all businesses operating in Canada that have at least one Canada Revenue Agency business number.

Accountants and bookkeepers who wish to register their clients can also use ROE Web.

If your business uses specialized payroll software to issue ROEs, you may be able to issue up to 1,200 ROEs at once through ROE Web. Read about the payroll extract feature.

To date, we are not able to provide the ROE Web service for self-employed fishers.
