Hazardous work protections for youth

The Ministry of Labour is asking for public feedback on regulations that are being developed to define what types of jobs are too hazardous for youth under age 16, or possibly up to 18 for certain jobs. We want to understand the concerns and expectations that young people, parents/guardians, workers and employers have around employment of young workers in hazardous industries.

As we look to develop these new regulations, we seek your input on whether young workers under 16, or possibly up to 18 for certain jobs, should be restricted from certain types of hazardous work.

Feeback will be accepted until June 10, 2022. This survey will take around 15 minutes to complete. Please skip questions you do not feel you are able to respond to but it is important to answers those at the end of the survey.
