Canada to let self-employed get parental benefits
OTTAWA (Reuters) - The Canadian government will unveil plans on Tuesday to allow self-employed people parental benefits under the employment insurance system.
Conservative Human Resources Minister Diane Finley's office said on Monday she would announce an employment insurance measure for self-employed workers. In the 2008 general election, the Conservatives pledged to let the self-employed opt into the system and gain parental benefits.
