THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that BPW Canada strongly urges the Government of Canada to amend the Employment Insurance Act to correct inequities with respect to people who are business owners and/or self-employed, by giving them the option to participate in the Employment Insurance (EI) program, thus allowing them access to maternity and parental leave and the Compassionate Leave for Caregivers.
