2. When I was laid off, I was deemed eligible for the Career Transition Assistance for long tenured workers. I decided to take advantage of it, enrolled at my local community college, and was accepted. I was wondering if the program pays 50% of my student fees, or 100% of my student fees?
Thanks for your help!
1. Probably not but they would suspend your EI claim and you can restart it when that job ends (at your max benefit).
2. It depends on your agreement with the Career Transition program, it is different for each person.
In other programs, you negotiate what they will pay and what your contribution will be.
