REMINDER: The deadline for this survey is Friday, October 5, 2018. 


Good afternoon,


The Government of Canada made a commitment to Canadians to help ensure that federally regulated workplaces, including Parliament Hill, are free from harassment and violence. Today, the government is taking the next step toward a strengthened federal framework to protect workers and support employers.

We are consulting with Canadians to hear their opinions on the proposed regulatory framework for Bill C-65 through an online consultation. We want to know what you think about the proposed regulations, which will help shape and influence the new framework should Bill C-65 become law.


We would like to invite you to participate in the consultation by:


The survey is open until October 5, 2018. A summary report highlighting the key findings will be available at a later date.

While I’m especially interested in hearing from employees, labour organizations, employers and employer organizations in the federally regulated private sector and Parliament Hill, all Canadians are invited to participate in the online survey.


Please share this message with your members, partners, colleagues, family and friends to help us reach as many people as possible.

I look forward to hearing your views—thank you in advance for your help in spreading the word.


Yours sincerely,

The Honourable Patty Hajdu

Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour
