Oct. 31: A Serious Anniversary on Halloween: 110 years of workers’ compensation law : a special event planned for Tuesday October 31st at 10 AM ET to celebrate the 110th anniversary of Sir William’s Report to the Ontario legislature.   [read ONIWG media release]

On October 31st, while our children and grandchildren trick or treat, injured and ill workers will be remembering Chief Justice William Meredith’s report to the Ontario Legislature that created our workers’ compensation system. This was the first piece of social legislature, preceding Medicare, Unemployment Insurance, social security, and other progressive measures. We remember with pride and mourn the fact that very sadly, the tide has turned against us today. Meredith tabled his report [summary] on October 31, 1913.

Contact to be on the mailing list to get notices and Zoom links for upcoming sessions.
