A Culture of Health

Vacation Policy

it surprises me that most developed countries workers are entitled to 4 weeks vacation min no matter how long you worked for a company All EU countries including Germany, UK, France all highly advanced economies all richer than Canada guarantee 4 weeks vacation. Australia a country very similar to Canada also guarantees 4 weeks.. why is Ontario behind? These economies did not run into the abyss after implementing these laws. Something the private sector likes to say when we have this discussion. if it works in most other advanced economies it can work in Ontario. Workplace stress is a health issue and it takes a toll on our health system. Workers including the younger generation want to spend more time with family and travel more abroad.
