Canada published the Workplace Harassment and Violence Prevention Regulations for public comment on April 27, 2019. The regulations are proposed to support the goals of Bill C-65, which includes authority to make regulations to prevent and respond to harassment and violence in the workplace. The proposed new stand-alone Work Place Harassment and Violence Prevention Regulations will apply to all federal workplaces covered under Part II of the Canada Labor Code (the Code), and replace Part XX (violence prevention) of the Canada Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, as well as portions of two other regulations that include violence prevention provisions. The proposed Regulations would include provisions to: prevent harassment and violence through comprehensive prevention policies, training, and improved data collection; respond to occurrences when they do happen through a resolution process that requires employers to communicate regularly with parties and that provides multiple options for seeking resolution; and make available to employees information respecting support services. These regulations will repeal the Canada Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, Part XX — Violence Prevention in the Work Place. It is expected that the proposed Regulations will come into force on the same day as the provisions of Bill C-65. This date will be set by order.
