Hey, so this question would be more for people who live in Ontario since that's the province I'm living in. I'm due October 2nd but Im having difficulty trying to figure out when I should apply for maternity benefits because I heard that if you apply too early, that they won't give you the one year maternity benefits. So, has anyone ever applied and how did it go for you?

I am on maternity leave right now and I worked until I was 38 weeks and 2 days pregnant. You don't apply for ei until your done work. You need to let your employer know at least 2weeks before you leave though. You should actually talk to your employer to ensure you do things right. They will probably need a doctor note with your expected last day of work.1
