An expert panel will provide advice on the complex issues affecting Canadians in the workplace

February 20, 2019
Significant changes have recently been made to the Canada Labour Code, but the government's work to modernize it is not over. Today, the Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour, announced that the government has established an independent panel of experts to study the most complex issues facing Canadian employers and workers in the workplace. The process for selecting the members of the Expert Panel was lengthy, thorough and exhaustive. The Labour Program reviewed more than 100 nominations over a period of approximately five months.

SAGE researcher and member Dalia Gesualdi-Fecteau will be joining six other colleagues on this Expert Panel. Congratulations Dalia!

SAGE professors Marie Laberge and Jessica Riel are among the authors of this research report titled Intimidation et harcèlement dans le secteur de la construction : Comprendre une réalité complexe afin de mieux intervenir.
