Answer to the question:

I am not a wage earner at my spouse’s farming business and he is its sole proprietor. Can we benefit from the QPIP?

No. If you have neither a business income nor a salary from the farm or from some outside employment, you are not entitled to QPIP benefits. Since it is an income replacement plan, you have to have declared income to be eligible for it.

Your spouse, however, may be eligible for paternity, parental or adoption benefits, as the case may be.
