If you move, you must inform the QPIP of your new address and telephone number. To do so, access your online file, or call the Centre de service à la clientèle at 1-888-610-7727. The information is needed in order for us to send you important information, such as your income tax slips. Note that you must provide us with your new address even if you have already made a change of address using the Service québécois de changement d’adresse.

The Minister of Labour, Employment and Social Solidarity and Minister Responsible for the Mauricie Region, Jean Boulet, is looking to ease the eligibility criteria for the minimum temporary benefit of $500 paid under the Québec Parental Insurance Plan (QPIP). The proposed change would allow some 30,000 parents who were receiving parental insurance benefits on September 27, 2020 to receive retroactive benefits calculated from that date. The easing of criteria is subject to adoption by the Assemblée nationale of the changes that need to be made to the Act respecting parental insurance.

A flexibility measure is available for workers who want to interrupt or defer their parental leave in order to go back to work related to the COVID-19 public health emergency, whether for their current employer or a different one. If you would like to take advantage of this measure, please call the Centre de service à la clientèle.
