New Ontario Minister of Labour- Laurie Scott

July 5, 2018

The Minister of Labour is responsible for the workers' compensation system.  The new Minister of Labour is Laurie Scott.  She has a special interest in preventing human sex trafficking.  Her platform from the recent campaign focuses on local issues to her riding and is found here

Her platform contains no reference to the WSIB, but does speak of "ridiculously high" taxes and fees.  There has, of course, been a material change since the campaign began with the US tariffs likely to adversely affect the Ontario economy in particular.
