Let’s talk about employment and working conditions

We spend a lot of time in the workplace and it can affect our health.  Where we work and the conditions we work in is a social determinant of health.   High demands and long hours in the work place can lead to work stress, a loss of work-life balance and poor physical and mental health.

What supports our local employment and working conditions?

  • Provincial legislation, the Employment Standard Act, provides guidelines on minimum wage, hours of work, personal emergency leave, pregnancy and parental leave and vacation time
  • Employment + Education Centre in Brockville and ontrac Employment Resource Services in Smiths Falls provide mentorship, training and resources for job seekers and employers
  • Local employers offer living wages, health care benefits, retirement saving and  family-friendly workplace policies
