APEGA Endorses Bill C-243

APEGA endorses the creation of a maternity program strategy for Canada, along with enabling amendments to the Employment Insurance Act. Covered in Bill C-243, the proposals now before Parliament would give women more flexibility in accessing maternity leave benefits.

Every day, Professional Engineers and Professional Geoscientists help build sustainable futures for all Canadians. An important part of this process is removing barriers that can prevent women from achieving success in their chosen fields. If passed into law, Bill C-243 will help create a more diverse workplace, equipping more Canadians for success.
