The Government of Ontario has said it will not appeal that ruling to the Supreme Court of Canada and will repeal the law instead. You can read the Government of Ontario’s full release HERE.


As outlined in the Government’s statement, they intend to fully revoke Bill 124 in the “coming weeks” and “urgently” implement regulations to exempt non-unionized and non-associated workers from its provisions until the bill is officially repealed. .


Since no specific timelines or deadlines are provided in the Government statement, we will remain attentive and provide updates as they progress.
