Yes and no. Legally the EI overpayment is dealt wih by the bankrupcy, but from a practicaly standpoint it is quite likely the government will reduce any future EI claims you make by 20% per week until the overpayment is repaid. This is not legal, but I don’t know of anyone on EI that has paid a lawyer to fight it…
