What happens if one parent resides in Quebec and the other parent lives outside the province, and both parents want to receive benefits to care for their child?

These two parents, one living in Quebec, and one living outside of Quebec when the first parent requests benefits, do not have access to the same program. The parent who lives in Quebec must apply for parental or adoption benefits from the Quebec Parental Insurance Plan. The parent who lives outside the province must apply for parental benefits from the federal EI program. If they wish to receive parental or adoption benefits and are eligible, they must come to an agreement about how they will share the number of weeks of benefits that are payable to them individually, according to their respective plans. If the parents can’t agree, a formula, agreed upon by Quebec and Canada, is in place to divide the weeks between the parents.
