Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
antedate  misinformation from Commission 


The claimant was finished to work on August 13, 2010. He applied for benefits on April 27, 2011. On July 25, 2011, the claimant requested that the Commission antedate his claim to August 26, 2010. The claimant alleged that his delay in applying for benefits was because a Service Canada representative had told him that his ROE included some mistakes and that he had to submit a new ROE. The claimant also alleged that the Service Canada representative had not instructed him to apply for benefits immediately. The Commission denied the antedate because he had not shown good cause for his delay. The FCA found that it was open to the BOR to determine that the reasons given by the claimant for his delay in applying for benefits did not constitute good cause, and that the Umpire’s conclusion to uphold the BOR’s decision was reasonable.
