New legislation was unveiled on November 8, 2017, pursuant to An Act to amend the Canada Labour Code (harassment and violence), also referred to as Bill C-65. The amendment would merge existing separate labor standards for sexual harassment and violence to enact a comprehensive approach that takes the full spectrum of harassment and violence into consideration. If adopted, Bill C-65 will require employers in federally-regulated workplaces to develop improved policies and programs to help prevent workplace violence and harassment. It could take a year or more before the rules come into effect, as regulations would have to be crafted once the bill receives parliamentary approval.
