Pay equity

Adopted in November 1996, the Pay Equity Act aims to correct the portion of the wage gap attributable to the systemic undervaluation of jobs predominantly held by women. It applies to any company with at least ten (10) employees, from the private, public or parapublic sector. The Standards, Equity, Occupational Health and Safety Commission (CNESST) is responsible for the application of this law.
