You are wrong. Social welfare includes Socil; assistant, child benefits, Old Age Security, Guarantee Income Supplement EI,CPP Worker Compensation etc. Your description regarding EI is right Once a person EI runs out then it is Social assistant and the amount vary from province to province. You are in Wildrose Country and a single employable person only receive $7524 a year. Including other provincial and federal benefits, the maximum paid out is $8106 a year Over the last 2 decades both the federal and provincials govts have claw back the amount paid out to discourage people of turning to Social Assistant as a lifestyle Just look at those seasonal workers eg agriculture and fishing. Work x amount of months. Go on EI(in the old days it was known as UIC) then social assistant. Year after year the cycle repeat it self Every time the govt clawback those on assistant complain like hell. Nowadays most seasonal workers in agriculture and fishing are those temporary foreign workers
What high standards??? You say you are in Cowtown. Have you been to those ethnic ghettos like Chinatown little India ? Have you not come across people who cant speak English? These people migrate via the famlily reunification route...easiest and the lowest standard

This is an old post but also very wrong. The 'welfare payment' you are referring to here is the Employment Insurance ("EI"). It's not given to you just because you menganggur. EI is only available for those who have been working and have been contributing to EI for a certain number of years. That means if you show up, no work, then you will not qualify. The EI payment is also not a lot, it is usually around 50% of your last paycheck, and the intention is to help you manage while you get back on your feet. In addition, as an EI recipient you will be required to consistently show the efforts you are putting into finding your next job. Yes, there are people who try to make these kind of social benefits as their income but it will not last long, the government are good at finding out and if you are charged with EI fraud, guess what, it will be an amount owing and you have to pay back to the government also.
If you are interested to immigrate to Canada, first step is to start your research at:https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refuge...ress-entry.html
You will quickly realize there are high standards as to who Canada will welcome into their open immigration program, as they want new Canadians who have the means and capability to contribute to the society, not to become a leech there.
