Consultation on Pay Equity Regulations

From: Employment and Social Development Canada

Current status: Closed

This consultation ran from May 29th, 2019 to June 28th, 2019.

We thank everyone who participated in the survey and submitted feedback via the discussion paper to help develop regulations for the Pay Equity Act.

Consultation details

On December 13, 2018, the Government of Canada adopted a new proactive pay equity regime for the federal public and private sectors with the passing of the federal Pay Equity Act. Once in force, the new legislation will require federal jurisdiction employers with 10 or more employees to develop a pay equity plan to ensure that they are providing equal pay for work of equal value. The Government of Canada sought input to help develop regulations to support the new proactive pay equity regime.

The input from the survey will inform the development of a method to complete a pay equity plan in a business or organization where there are no predominantly male jobs.

The feedback from the discussion paper will contribute to the development of regulations that respond to the varied experiences and circumstances of employees and employers to which the Act will apply.
