How to Complete Your ROE

How to Complete Your ROE for Apprentices Entering In-Class Training:

  • A tip for Employer Sponsors on how to complete your ROE, when apprentices start in-class training – in order to support automatic EI benefits for your apprentice, employers must remit an ROE indicating the Apprenticeship Code ‘J’ (not the Lay off Code ‘A’ and not schooling Code ‘C’)
  • The EI Commissioner confirmed that this gesture has been made available to all Apprentices; provided the Employer completes the ROE properly.


    • Code J – Apprentice Training
      Employers would need to use this code if the employee is leaving the workplace temporarily for participating in a government-approved apprenticeship training program
