How long have you worked there for?
You would be eligible for EI if you can prove that you were constructively dismissed in most cases.
When an employer does something that fundamentally changes the nature of the employment so that it drives the employee to quit, this may be a case of constructive dismissal. This is usually the case when the employer reduces wages, cuts hours etc. It is also the case where the employer's conduct makes it intolerable for the employee to continue working.
But it also depends on how much you've contributed to EI. If you've not worked elsewhere and have only worked for 5 weeks that will not be sufficient.
Then this is constructive dismissal and you are eligible for EI so long as you can prove that this is constructive dismissal.
You can call EI and run the facts by them to see what they say.
