PAY EQUITY COMMISSION PROGRAM - VOTE 1602

The Pay Equity Office is responsible for administering the Pay Equity Act to ensure the achievement and maintenance of pay equity in Ontario, both in the private and public sectors, through a self-reliant process supported by education, policy and research, and dispute resolution.

The Pay Equity Hearings Tribunal, a quasi-judicial tri-partite administrative tribunal, is responsible for adjudicating disputes arising under the Pay Equity Act. In addition, the program provides administrative and financial support services to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario.

NOTE: Commencing in 2003-04, Estimates are presented on the accrual basis of accounting. Information for 2002-03 and earlier years is presented on the modified cash basis, and therefore comparison between 2003-04 and earlier year figures may not be meaningful. Differences between cash and accrual relate to adjustments such as timing of transfer payments and provisions for bad debts, that would increase or decrease the 2002-03 amounts had they been presented on the accrual basis.

Adjustments for this Ministry, if any, are indicated by superscripted references above and are explained on the page following the Ministry Summary - Reconciliation of 2002-03 Estimates from Cash to Accrual.
