Canada Labour Code prosecutions
Prosecutions are reserved for the most serious offences or for cases where other compliance and regulatory tools have been unsuccessful at convincing the employer to comply with legislation. Prosecutions demonstrate to employers and Canadians that serious violations of the Canada Labour Code and the pursuant Canada Occupational Health and Safety Regulations are unacceptable.
Between 2010 and 2017, 31 out of the 35 cases proposed by the Labour Program, where charges were laid, resulted in a guilty plea or conviction. This amounts to a 89% success rate.
For more information on prosecutions and other health and safety compliance tools, please consult the Labour Program's Compliance Policy.
