Frequently Asked Questions Investigations

I've entered as much information as I think I can for sections 9 and 11, but I still get errors. Why?

To correctly complete an e-QIP request you cannot have gaps between your dates. Validation is based on data entered and any time lapse between the end date of one record and the start date of the next record will prompt an error message. You must indicate all period of self-employment, unemployment, or vacation as appropriate. Please provide as complete a set of data as possible. Depending on the type of investigation you will receive, you may be required to provide 10 years of data for some sections. An error message will indicate if this is the case.
