What's the most ridiculous regulation in Canada?
Meet the top offenders and choose the worst!
After countless advocacy letters, consultations, submissions and meetings with government officials, we can finally proclaim victory on repealing most of Bill 6.
Bill 6 was labour legislation disguised as farm safety that forced agri-businesses, farms and ranches to comply with urban workplace legislation that did not reflect the unique realities of running a farm or ranch in Alberta.
CFIB was successful on getting the previous government to make some changes to Bill 6 including, exempting family farms from WCB coverage and some exemptions on employment standards.
CFIB can now claim victory with the passage of the Farm Freedom and Safety Act!
The new legislation repeals most of Bill 6 and better reflects the realities of operating a farm or ranch in Alberta. Changes include:
Your input through the Farm Freedom and Safety consultation helped inform and make government implement these changes. CFIB will continue to advocate for our agri-businesses members and ensure government understands their unique business.
