This from our payroll guru who is far more concise than me:
BC, no
AB, 12 hours/day, except in case of emergencies
ON, no work past 8 per day or 48 hours per week, without consent
QC, no limit on hours worked, but limits on mandatory overtime
PE, no
NS, no

Does this mean employees can work 9 hours a day Monday to Thursday, 8 hours Friday without electronic or written consent in Ontario? (manufacturing/construction)
