A variety of measures have been used to identify the extent of seasonal work. While some give an indication of the incidence of Employment Insurance (EI) use among seasonal workers or the seasonality of frequent claimants’ EI patterns, they do not directly measure the relationship between seasonal work and frequent EI use. Such analysis requires a longitudinal source, such as the Survey of Labour and Income Dynamics (SLID) which captures both work and EI use patterns over time.
