Summary of Training : Bill C-65

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.

Session Overview

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.

CAPE Education Program

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.
