    I believe you will. You have to meet the work criteria, but it doesn't have to be with the same company.

    Here you go from the fa site
    "worked for at least 10 of the 13 months prior to the birth or adoption of your child, and
    worked for at least 330 hours in that 10 month period (just over one day a week), with no more than an eight week gap between two consecutive working days."
    A working day is a day you have worked for at least one hour.

    There are some exceptions to the work test if you cannot meet it due to pregnancy complications and/or premature birth.

    You do not need to be working full-time to be eligible for Parental Leave Pay. You may meet the work test even if you:

    are a part-time, casual or seasonal worker
    are a contractor or self-employed
    work in a family business such as a farm
    have multiple employers, or
    have recently changed jobs.
    If you work for a family business (such as a farm), you can include your hours of work even if the business is not generating any income, providing you are undertaking the work for financial gain or benefit."

    I am surprised a work day can only be an hour!
