Under the provisions of the Employment Insurance Act, you have to keep one copy of all ROEs issued as a part of your records for six years. ROE Web allows you to keep the ROEs electronically and you can view or print them any time within this six-year period.
ROEs that are identified as draft ROEs are retained for a period of 15 days in the Service Canada database. During the 15-day period, you can either submit and store the draft ROE, or view and print the draft ROE. After the 15-day period, the draft ROE will be deleted from the Service Canada database.
Service Canada keeps ROEs for 11 years, in accordance with the Access to Information Act, the Privacy Act and Info Source.
