Québec Parental Insurance Plan

QPIP flexibility measure related to COVID-19

Interruption or deferral of parental leave to participate in efforts related to the health emergency

In effect as of March 28, 2020

The Québec Parental Insurance Plan (QPIP) is putting measures in place to relax the requirements for workers who want to interrupt or defer their parental leave in order to go back to work, either for their current or another employer, during the public health emergency related to COVID-19. For more information, see the related press release. If you would like to take advantage of this measure, please call the Centre de service à la clientèle du RQAP.

If you have received all of the QPIP benefits to which you were entitled, you cannot go back to work and you want to know what kind of financial assistance you can receive, visit the page Québec.ca/coronavirus. It contains the measures and programs offered by the Gouvernement du Québec.
