Impact Analysis – Proposed Bill 148


On September 27th. 2017 the Keep Ontario Working Coalition released CANCEA’s final economic impact analysis on Bill 148 and also published a report showcasing testimonials from employers on how they will be impacted by the legislation. Looking at both reports, while the Government is correct to say that there will be a stimulus from Bill 148, it will hardly cover the $23 billion cost challenge to business in the first two years – a substantial amount that poses great risk to our economy and cannot be resolved through offsets alone. We recommend the government slow down implementation of Bill 148, conduct their own economic analysis and make appropriate amendments to avoid unintended consequences on Ontario’s most vulnerable.
