Bill 148: the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, passed into legislation on Wednesday, November 22nd.  The Act includes increasing the minimum wage to 14 dollars an hour as of January 1st, 2018, moving to 15 dollars an hour in 2019, and adjusting annually for inflation in the years to follow.  You can access the Ministry of Labour’s news release at

The Act includes a number of other changes beyond the increase to minimum wage that will impact employers and employees in workplaces across Ontario. To support residential service providers in preparing for these legislative changes, OARTY offered a webinar on December 15, 2017.  The webinar detailed the changes and new requirements in the Act, and explained what is required to ensure agencies are compliant with the new legislation.  The webinar was re-recorded on December 19th due to technical issues, with questions from participants and the slide deck included.  To access the pre-recorded webinar and slide deck, please register below.
