MPP Fraser to Reintroduce 10 Paid Sick Days for Ontario Workers Act

QUEEN’S PARK – Today, John Fraser, MPP for Ottawa South and Interim Leader of the Ontario Liberal Party, will reintroduce his Private Member’s Bill, 10 Paid Sick Days for Ontario Workers Act.

“Paid sick days need to be back on the table after this government took away the few workers had access to,” said MPP Fraser. “That’s why I’m reintroducing this Bill. Keeping our economy healthy starts by giving Ontarians the support they need to stay home when they are sick.”

Throughout the pandemic, workers, employers and healthcare professionals repeatedly called on the Ford Conservatives to expand the provincially-funded paid sick leave program, to ensure workers have access to 10 paid sick days. Instead, Doug Ford chose to introduce an insufficient program that only offered 3 paid sick days. 

And now, by refusing to renew their own paid sick day program, the Conservative government has left millions of Ontario workers without access to any paid sick days, forcing Ontarians to choose between keeping their workplace healthy or putting food on the table.  

“By ending the provincially-funded paid sick leave program, Doug Ford’s message said to Ontarians — the workers without access to paid sick days — is ‘you’re on your own’,” added MPP Fraser.
