Pay Transparency Legislation in Canada

Pay transparency legislation is not in Ontario (YET), but it is working its way into law in Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, British Columbia, Newfoundland & Labrador. 

Generally this legislation prohibits an employer from asking about a prospective hires wage history.  The article provides more below, but be aware as this may affect you if hiring remote workers in other provinces…

Pay transparency became the topic of much discussion when the province of Ontario tabled legislation in 2018. While this legislation never came into effect (still to this day) other provinces have enacted pay transparency laws and others are considering doing so.
