Are there any updates on the Pay Transparency Act that was passed earlier this year?  The last update I can see says that the PTA is still halted.

No new developments and I don’t expect there will be as long as the PC remains in control. As you know, the Pay Transparency Act (Bill 57) has received Royal Assent but not yet been proclaimed effective. That’s only part of the holdup. To go into effect, the MOL will have to create specific regulations to implement the Bill  And based on the PC’s election campaign and subsequent actions in paring down Bill 148, I’d be very surprised to see the MOL do that. But I do I check the Gazette twice a month–most recently 2 weeks ago–and will immediately report in HRI if I see any Regs. or hear anything about Pay Transparency’s taking effect. Hope that helps.
