My girlfriend is entitled to the max (500 per week), and gets about 450….so you’ll probably get just over 400…

It’s the same across Canada – I get 450 a week. It’s paid every other week and it took about six weeks to get started. The application was really straightforward and I haven’t had any problems with it.

Max is $501 per week and tax varies, but not more than $50. Not sure how they determine it, but I wouldn’t assume that it’s a percentage of the gross, because it’s not the same for everyone getting the max.

@awakemysoul:  Hhmm… well if you’re not being topped up by your employer, and don’t have income coming from anywhere else, then technically your total income for 2014 will be less than what you made in 2013 (because you’re not earning your normal wage, just 55% of it), so I wouldn’t expect you to owe more back than you did last year (if you owed any at all). But of course it’s always best to prepare for the worst! Good luck!

@TammieRei:  +1000  Agreed. I was going to say the same thing.
