Update on pay equity in the province

During the budget estimates, the Minister responsible for Women's Equality, Marie-Claude Blais, announced that pay equity payments for child care, home support and transition home workers would begin in June 2013 and would be retroactive to April 2012. The pay equity programme for group home (or community residences) still is not completed even though we were told they would be in 2012-2013. Now we are told it probably will be done by the beginning of August. The Minister also promised a report on the Pay Equity Act, 2009 by the end of summer 2013. There too, there are important delays and the Minister says the payments would be retroactive to April 2012. The Act applies exclusively to the public sector.
