Introduction of C-318, my private member's bill to ensure greater parity in parental leave options

Canada’s system of parental leave benefits provides critical financial support to parents, while they care for their new child.
Adoptive and intended parents are however at a disadvantage under the current parental benefit system.
Today, I introduced my private member’s bill, c-318, that proposes a new 15-week EI benefit for adoptive and intended parents to ensure greater parity in the parental benefits landscape.
All families are deserving of equal access to parental leave benefits.
