Québec Parental Insurance Plan



On June 23, 2021, The Minister of Labour, Employment and Social Solidarity and Minister Responsible for the Mauricie Region, Jean Boulet,  has announced through a press release (French only) that Québec Parental Insurance Plan premium rates for 2022 will remain at the same level as in 2021.

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.

Bill 78 was assented to on June 8, 2021. It amends the Act respecting parental insurance to ease the eligibility criteria for the minimum temporary benefit of $500 paid under the Québec Parental Insurance Plan (QPIP).

For some 30,000 parents who were receiving parental insurance benefits on September 27, 2020, this means they will be able to receive retroactive assistance calculated from that date. Retroactive payments of the amounts to individuals eligible for the minimum temporary benefit will be issued from the week of June 20, 2021 until mid-July 2021.
