*there are technicalities that could lead this to be illegal, but legally you can collect while going to school. it all depeands on the employer and reason for terminating the employment.

Taking a course or training program on your own initiative, without being directed to do so by a designated authority, does not automatically result in the loss of regular benefits. Although participation in a course is commendable, you must show that you are available to work while you are attending school. It is essential that you continue to look for work and that taking a course does not prevent you from being available to work or from accepting any appropriate offer of employment during normal working hours. You need to be ready to make all the necessary arrangements to hold a job or even drop the course if necessary.
You need to notify us if you are taking a course or training program
You must declare your participation in a course or a training program when you present your claim for benefits or when you are completing your report by Internet or by telephone. If you are taking a full-time course or training program without having been directed to do so, you must complete the “Training course information” questionnaire. It is important to return it as soon as possible, in order to avoid needless delays in the payment of your benefits and also to ensure that you are not receiving benefits to which you are not entitled.
When the questionnaire is received, it will be given to an agent for a decision. If you are not entitled to benefits, you will be notified by telephone or by letter.
yes. it would be considered fraud. here is info from HRSDC about EI fraud:lush191 said:is it illegal not to tell them?
