Statement on the Making Ontario Open For Business Act
JAMA Canada represents Japanese-brand vehicle assemblers and dealerships responsible for 85,000 direct and indirect jobs, that in turn supports 115,000intermediate and expenditure-induced jobs across Canada. Our members believe that all employees deserve the benefit of a safe and fair working environment that balances rights, ensures respect and provides competitive compensation.
JAMA Canada supports the Government of Ontario’s Bill entitled the Making Ontario Open for Business Act, as it will make important changes to the Employment Standards Act and Labour Relations Act that will support the province’s economic competitiveness.
Our members continue to look forward to working with the government to foster an environment that promotes respect and fairness while allowing us to compete on a global stage.
