Advocacy Snapshot

The Greater Sudbury Chamber of Commerce and the Ontario Chamber Network are seeking grassroots data on the impact of Bill 148, the Fair WorkplacesBetter Jobs Act, which amended the Employment Standards Act and the Labour Relations Act.  We want to know how your business has been impacted by:

  • the increase to the minimum wage;
  • expanded leave entitlements;
  • equal pay for equal work provisions; and
  • other changes introduced by Bill 148.

The information you provide will be summarized in a document to be shared with the Government of Ontario in order to advise them on how to bring balance back to labour legislation in Ontario.

The chamber is looking for specific, statistical information about the financial, legal, and administrative impacts of Bill 148 on your business since January 1, 2018.  Your name or contact information will not be collected, and all data will be presented in aggregate.

To show how Bill 148 has impacted your business, please use this form.  Your input is greatly appreciated.

Are you still trying to determine how best to manage the changes introduced by Bill 148?  Join the chamber for a Breakfast With Champions: Bill 148 with Emily Blimkie, Manager, MNP LLP.  Emily will discuss best practices and what you can do to mitigate the impacts of this legislation.  Click here for registration.
