The Quebec Parental Insurance Plan, which comes into effect on January 1, 2006, replaces the maternity, parental and adoption benefits currently available under the Federal Employment Insurance Plan. Benefits associated with a birth or adoption taking place on or after January 1, 2006, will be paid under this new plan. Among other things, parents will be able to choose between two benefit options and decide the duration of their leave as well as their income replacement rate.
