Your Rights as a Worker

You have rights as a worker, even if you are not a Canadian citizen, permanent resident or you do not have a work permit.

This fact sheet has information about your rights as a worker. It has information about:

  • Who has rights as a worker?
  • What rights do workers have?
  • What if someone discriminates against me as a worker?
  • What if other things at work are not fair for me?
  • What else can I do?
  • How to get help
You can also read about labour unions to learn about how you are protected at work if you are in a unionized environment.
