10 days paid sick leave
Trudeau will push for 10 days paid sick leave for all Canadian workers
The prime minister said today that he is in discussion with the premiers to make 10 days paid sick leave mandatory for all workers across Canada.
"Nobody should have to choose between taking sick leave or paying their bills," Justin Trudeau said during his daily press briefing today.
Trudeau added that Ottawa is continuing discussions with provincial leaders to ensure that the policy is implemented when the economy begins recovering from the pandemic.
"We will also be looking at other longer-term mechanisms to support workers who need sick leave," he added.
