Understand employment regulations

Are you a new business owner? If so, your first step is to figure out whether your business is federally or provincially regulated. If, like almost 90% of businesses, your company is regulated provincially, check out the guidelines and fact sheets available through your provincial or territorial ministry of labour. Better yet, call our Business Counsellors toll free at 1-888-234-2232 for timely answers to your questions.


Do these questions sound familiar? We can help!

  • What is the minimum wage in my province?
  • Which deductions do I make from employee earnings?
  • Is Remembrance Day a paid public holiday?
  • How do I pay employees for public holidays?
  • What are the mandatory food and rest breaks for employees?
  • How do I calculate vacation pay?
  • What steps must I take to terminate an employee?


Confused about how these regulations apply to your business?  Help is just a call away!  Dial 1-888-234-2232 and our Business Counsellors will be happy to assist with your queries about staffing regulations.
