    70% of your salary for a year, and you can take extra unpaid time without losing your job. The mother and father can split the leave as well.

    Excellent plan. Get full year of mat leave. The pay us topped up to 97% your regular pay. Your partner can take some of the leave.

    The maternity leave is very flexible; you can choose to take the House of Commons top-up allowing you to make close to the same salary when off. Repayment of this plan is done on gradually once you return.
