On November 9, 2023, the Supreme Court of Canada issued the long-awaited decision in R. v. Greater Sudbury (City). The outcome of this decision has widespread and significant implications under the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) that will impact municipalities in the future.


In this one-hour Advantage CPD webinar, we will cover:

  • OHSA provisions relevant to the case
  • background and case history
  • why municipal HR professionals should be aware of this decision
  • the impact this decision could have on how your municipality conducts business, including commercial contracts, inspections and reporting obligations.

Audience and Learning Objectives:

Developed specifically for HR professionals and health and safety professionals in the municipal sector, participants will leave with an understanding of the history of this decision, how it will affect their operations and potential changes they may need to make to ensure they are protected for the future.

This webinar will include an interactive Q&A feature. A panel discussion will be built into the last 15 minutes of the session to address audience questions that were submitted.
