EI overpayments often are not dischargeable by bankruptcy. If you failed to report income or otherwise misrepresented your situation and received benefits as a result then bankruptcy law will not deal with this debt.
So – how/why were you overpaid by EI? If you did nothing wrong then the debt is dischargeable. Otherwise, you have to repay it…
