SERVICE CANADA EXTENDS DEADLINE FOR DISCONTINUANCE OF CERTAIN ROE WEB FORMATS

Service Canada has extended the deadline for discontinuance of certain ROE Web formats until August 31, 2016. Service Canada previously announced that the following ROE web formats will be discontinued on March 31, 2016:

  • 27 Week Flat file
  • 53 Week Flat file
  • 53 Week XML file version 1.0
  • 27 Week Online Form

However, due to employers’ challenges with meeting this deadline and a lack of awareness by (mostly smaller) employers, Service Canada has extended the deadline to August 31, 2016.

Effective September 1, 2016, (instead of April 1, 2016) Service Canada will only be accepting the following new ROE Web formats:

  • 53-Week Online Form
  • 53-Week XML Payroll Extract File XML Version 2.0
  • 53 Week Assistant Online form
