Submission to Ministry of Labour on Employment Standards for Children


In November 2019, First Call responded to the Ministry of Labour’s call for submissions on child employment standards regulation. We’re optimistic that new legislation and the accompanying regulations will better protect children from accidents, injury and exploitation while working in BC. We appreciate the Ministry has received many submissions, including from employer groups and we encourage government to bringing BC into compliance with international law that puts the safety, health and well being of children and youth first.
