    I have a large number of Air Cadet friends from high-school, in the Ottawa area now. I love what cadets offers, and it got me here!

    When you say ‘federally regulated businesses’ what scope does this include? Can you give us some examples?

    Is there a difference in occupational health and safety for federally regulated businesses and those that are not? If so, in what way?

    Thanks so much for educating us.

    Thanks for asking. Apart from federal government departments some businesses such as banks, telecommunications, rail, air and trucking that crosses provincial or federal borders are regulated by the Federal Government’s labour program at ESDC (formerly known as Labour Canada). Those that are not are regulated by provincial regulations. The federal labour program determines if a business is federally or provincially regulated. If federal the fall under the Canada Labour Code vs the provincial acts.

    Although labour laws and health and safety regulations are similar they are not always the same.

    I hope this helps. I am a retired Occupational Health and Safety Officer from ESDC’s Labour Program.

    Hi Lewis,

    Great to read your background and future opportunities. Thank you for your service and going through the sea cadet program years ago, I still hold my CIC officers in high regard.
