The AgCoalition in Review

The AgCoalition representatives had a very clear mandate for the Employment Standards table: 1) Preserve the key areas of employment standards that would otherwise negatively impact production or animal welfare and, 2) Extend the family exemption that was amended to Bill 6 last December.

While Bill 6 has been described as legislation supporting agricultural safety, the published consultation table topics include elements of labour and employment standards that are also under consideration in the new legislation for the agricultural sector.

As introduced in the previous update, an immediate focus area for the newly-formed AgCoalition was responding to the announced Bill 6 government table consultation process.

Preview: Alberta is a resource blessed province, which provided an opportunity for the growth of major industries that worked to supply society with metals, minerals and fuels while providing an economic engine for Canada.
