As the federal, provincial and territorial ministers responsible for labour, we have a shared priority of ensuring health and safety in the workplace. Our governments have worked together diligently in recent years, taking significant steps to ensure the safety and health of workers and to address the challenges of modern workplaces. But there is still more work to be done.
To this effect, we commit to the following:
In acknowledgement of the progress made via the memorandum of understanding between the Canadian Association of Administrators of Labour Legislation and the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety, we instruct our officials to continue moving forward with the harmonization effort. This will help to ensure the safety and health of our workplaces, while fostering economic growth and stability.
