Any Canadian STM+s who have experience with splitting parental leave benefits, or general knowledge even with the EI application process? I'm so, so confused about the application process and would just love to hear your experience. When do I apply? Do I have to apply twice (maternity leave, then parental leave? or just all together)? Why does GOC make it so confusing (... a hypothetical question). Any advice to keep me off the phone with Service Canada would be appreciated!
