What is Bill 47?

Bill 47 (Making Ontario Open For Business Act, 2018) takes effect on January 01, 2019 and repeals or amends some provisions of the previous Bill 148 (Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, 2017). Bill 47 Bill amends the Employment Standards Act, 2000.

The new unpaid leave provisions introduced through Bill 47, which include sick leave, family responsibility leave and bereavement leave, provide employees with a certain number of leave days per year. Bill 47 will impact the changes previously made to the Employment Standards Act, 2000 through Bill 148 that mostly came into effect on January 01, 2018. While there are several changes in Bill 47, some components of Bill 148 will be preserved, including the $14 minimum wage, the increase to 3 weeks of vacation after 5 years, and the majority of the new and expanded statutory leaves of absence including: Extended Parental Leave, Extended Pregnancy Leave, Expanded Critical Illness Leave, Domestic or Sexual Violence Leave. 

The following topics were changed in the ConnectsUs HR Ontario Employee Handbook effective January 01, 2019. 

  • Personal Emergency Leave  
  • Sick Leave 
    New Legislated Leave Added
  • Family Responsibility Leave
    New Legislated Leave Added
