*Ontario Helping People Understand Workplace Rights and Responsibilities : *

Ontario is supporting employers and employees by raising awareness of
workplace rights and responsibilities through the new Employment Standards
Training and Education Program.

The program will provide grants to non-profit organizations that will help
develop projects that educate vulnerable workers or small- and mid-sized
businesses on their rights and duties under the Employment Standards Act
<https://www.labour.gov.on.ca/english/es/pubs/guide/index.php>.

Eligible non-profit organizations can apply for the grant online
<http://www.grants.gov.on.ca/GrantsPortal/en/OntarioGrants/GrantOpportunities/PRDR017704.html>.
The application deadline is 4 p.m. on October 30, 2017, and successful
applicants will be announced in 2018.

This new grant program responds to recommendations in the final report
<https://www.labour.gov.on.ca/english/about/workplace/> of the Changing
Workplaces Review for continued collaboration with other organizations on
education and outreach. Ontario is also making changes to create more
opportunity and security for workers through its plan for Fair Workplaces
and Better Jobs
<https://news.ontario.ca/opo/en/2017/05/fair-workplaces-better-jobs.html>.
Proposed legislative measures includes increasing the minimum wage,
ensuring part-time workers are paid the same hourly wage as full-time
workers, introducing paid personal emergency leave days for every worker
and stepping up enforcement of employment laws.

Protecting workers and supporting business is part of our plan to create
jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
