On February 28, the Ontario government introduced the Working for Workers Act, 2022 that would, if passed:
- Establish foundational rights and protections for digital platform workers who provide ride-share, delivery, or courier services. This would guarantee them a minimum wage, protection of their tips, the resolution of disputes in Ontario, and protection from reprisals. Learn more.
- Tackle Ontario’s historic labour shortage – the largest in a generation – by ensuring out-of-province workers can register in their regulated profession or trade within 30 days. This would help these workers become registered and find jobs in their field faster so they can contribute to driving Ontario’s economic growth. Learn more.
