Bill C-65 : Prevention of Violence and Harassment in the Workplace
CAPE's very first lunch-and-learn series was held on July 5 and 16. The purpose of the workshops was to raise awareness among the leaders of the union Locals and the members of the National Executive Committee about the new Bill C-65, which addresses the prevention of violence and harassment in the workplace, and to explain the differences between the old and new harassment resolution process.
This is what the sessions covered:
- The main differences between the old harassment prevention and resolution plan and the proposals in Bill C-65.
- The objectives of the new law, which involve major obligations for the employer.
- The new complaint and incident investigation process.
- The roles that unions and occupational health and safety committees will now play.

It was the first time that CAPE presented a lunch-and-learn training. Stay tuned: we plan to offer more lunch-and-learn sessions on a variety of themes in 2021–2022.
We also created documentation related to Bill C-65 which you can find in the Issues and advocacy section of our website.
