December 05, 2022

On November 8, 2019, Ontario’s Bill 124 – the Protecting a Sustainable Public Sector for Future Generations Act, 2019 (“Bill 124”) – was proclaimed in force.  The stated intent of Bill 124 was to ensure public sector compensation increases were consistent with the principles of responsible fiscal management and sustainability of the public service.  Bill 124 placed a 1% cap on wage and other compensatory increases for impacted public and quasi-public sector employers for a three-year moderation period.
