    I live in Ontario, Canada.

    To make a long story short, I was laid off last year, got EI benefits, finally found work through a temp agency, worked there for a very short time because my assignment ended (basically, they didn't need me there anymore), so I am waiting for my job agent to call with more work, and, for a number of places I sent my resume to, to call (if they do).

    Thing is, my EI finished last month, I need money for rent. I can't sit here waiting for the agency or any of these other places to call so some people suggested going to school through EI.


    What I want to know is, do I still need to be on EI to get the extension or can I call them and just tell them my EI is done but I need to get an extension because I can't find work?

    I am going to call them tomorrow anyways but I figured maybe I can get an answer from someone who knows about this sort of thing. This is the first time I have ever been on EI so I don't know about the options you can have (just remember that my EI has ended so I am basically looking to ask for an extension because I haven't been able to get a job after the last place). The site is not telling me much and the job I was sent to was suppose to be long term but they had rehired someone who worked there before to take over for a girl who is going on mat leave soon.


    Thanks guys.

    I think that contacting the EI people is probably best route.

    You will have to call them. I was on EI years ago and was under the impression that once it ends it ends.

    Where in Ontario are you? Because if you are desperate for work I am sure there are a lot of jobs hiring in the GTA. I'm also sure they are the McD and Starbuck kind of jobs.

    Thanx

    Ontario, hmmm. Plenty of gentlemen's clubs up there. I'm sure they're hiring.

    hahahaha


    Thanks a lot guys, I woke up and got a call from the agency and I got a job order picking AUTO PARTS *salivates* Sucks to be a nobody again but gotta climb back up the ladder in the working world.

    Damn man, that was pure luck....I've been waiting for a call for like two weeks and of course they call the day after I make a thread on TFW2005 and now it looks like a waste of a thread.


    <.<
