PAY EQUITY COMMISSION PROGRAM - VOTE 1602

The Pay Equity Office is responsible for administering and enforcing Ontario's Pay Equity Act which is intended to eliminate systemic gender discrimination in the compensation of work primarily performed by women. The mandate of the Office is to assist employers, employees and bargaining agents in the public and private sectors to achieve and maintain pay equity in their workplaces. To carry out this mandate, the Pay Equity Office provides education, advice, monitoring, investigation 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.
