School Board Update
Significant Legislation Impacting Ontario’s School Board Sector Receives Royal Assent
Date: November 4, 2022
As we previously reported, the Ontario government introduced Bill 28, Keeping Students in Class Act, 2022 (Bill 28) on October 31, 2022.
On November 3, 2022, Bill 28 received Royal Assent and is now law. As a result, it creates collective agreements between school boards and the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) with terms from November 3, 2022 and August 31, 2026 and which contain the central terms set out in Schedule 1 of Bill 28.
For a detailed summary of Bill 28, please see our School Board Update of November 1, 2022, Ontario Tables Significant Legislation Impacting School Board Sector.
Editor’s Note: On November 14, 2022, the Ontario government repealed Bill 28 and deemed it never to have come into force.
