Update

As of July 31, 2020, the withholding of amounts from parental insurance benefits for the repayment of a debt will resume.

The Ministère du Travail, de l'Emploi et de la Solidarité sociale is ending the flexibility measure that temporarily suspended the withholding of amounts for the repayment of a debt. That measure was implemented on April 20, 2020, in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

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.
