Human Resources and Skills Development Canada Labour Program

The Labour Program helps Canadians to participate in the new global economy. We do this by conducting research on developing workplace trends and by providing the latest information on collective bargaining and agreements. We develop, administer and enforce workplace legislation and regulations which cover industrial relations, health and safety and employment standards, and workplace equality. These laws cover federally regulated workers and employers. The Labour Program also works closely with provincial and territorial governments, unions, employers, and international partners to enhance working conditions and ensure healthy and fair workplaces for all Canadians.
