Welcome to the FAQ website covering document topics in Canada.
I am currently waiting for my permanent residency under the family sponsor ship and received an open work permit, so I’m currently employed. Now I discovered that I am pregnant and was wondering if I’m eligible to apply for maternity leave at all? If yes, is it required to have worked for the same employer the whole year before my maternity leave? It’s because I have been thinking to change my employer, as I am not happy there. It complicates things, but I am not willing to stress myself for that place during my pregnancy and be bullied all the time.
