UA Canada launched the National Parental Wellness Program in September 2019 The Program which is funded by Employer paid premiums provides two benefits:
- the Pregnancy Benefit ($100/week) which provides financial assistance to UA members who are pregnant and unable to work because their work environment is a hazard to the health of their unborn child; and,
- Maternity and Parental EI Assistance Benefits ($100/week) which provide “top up” benefits to members who are eligible for maternity or parental leave benefits under the EI Act.
The National Wellness Parental/Pregnancy Assistance Program is now available online! Please go the following link www.uacanada.ca/wellness to apply for program benefits.
