Implementation and maintenance of pay equity

Pay equity legislation requires an organization to ensure that employees in predominantly female job classes have access to at least the same pay as employees in predominantly male job classes of equivalent value.

This requirement to comply with current pay equity legislation applies to all provincially regulated companies in Quebec and Ontario, and to all federally regulated companies across Canada. A company’s obligations depend on its size.

PCI can help your organization implement an initial pay equity exercise and maintain it over time, whether or not your organization is unionized. We can also help a company integrate pay equity into its management practices, while respecting its total compensation strategy and its employer brand.
