Canadian Federal Pay Equity – Are you ready!

Recorded Thursday, Nov 21, 2019 1:00PM EST

The new Federal Pay Equity legislation in Canada is not necessarily that new. Many Federally regulated employers have been subject to pay equity requirements since the late 70’s. However, the new legislation aims to transform the pay equity model from a complaint-based model to a proactive model. Quebec and Ontario have had this model in place for some time now.

Although the Federal Government has yet to finalize and issue the legislative regulations to support the new Act, waiting to begin preparations will put your organization behind the eight ball. The journey to compliance may take a number of years. Why not “start your engines” and start the journey off in the right direction.
