EMPLOYMENT STANDARDS

The Ministry of Labour (the Ministry), established in 1919 to develop and administer labour legislation, enforces and promotes awareness of employment standards, such as minimum wage, hours of work, public holidays and other standards. The mission of the Ministry is to promote safe, fair and harmonious workplace practices that are essential to the social and economic well-being of the people of Ontario.

The Ministry of Labour's mandate is to set, communicate and enforce workplace standards while encouraging greater workplace self-reliance, through the Ministry's key areas of occupational health and safety, employment rights and responsibilities, and labour relations. Also, to prevent workplace injuries and illnesses, the Ministry develops, coordinates and implements strategies and can set standards for health and safety training.

A range of specialized commissions, boards, associations and agencies assist the ministry in its work.

ONTARIO HUMAN RIGHTS CODE

Taking effect on June 15, 1962, the Ontario Human Rights Code (OHRC, the Code) is a law in the Canadian province of Ontario that gives all people equal rights and opportunities without discrimination in specific areas such as housing and services and was the first Human Rights Code of its kind in Canada. Prior to its enactment, various laws dealt with different kinds of discrimination; the Code brought them together and added new protections.

The goal of the OHRC is to prevent discrimination and harassment because of race, colour, gender identity or expression, sex, sexual orientation, disability, creed, age and other grounds.
