Find links to acts, regulations and associated documents from the agencies with legislative responsibility for occupational safety and health (OSH) and workers' compensation in each Canadian jurisdiction.
OSH legislation in Canada outlines the general rights and responsibilities of the employer, the supervisor and the worker. Each of the ten provinces, three territories and the federal government has its own OSH legislation. Federal legislation applies to employees of the federal government and federal corporations. It also applies to workers in federally regulated industries such as inter-provincial and international transportation, shipping, telephone and cable systems. Provincial or territorial legislation applies to most other workplaces. Learn more about what legislation applies where.
