Karen Wright credits working in child care with “stopping my aging process.”

The CCHRSC office will close on February 6, 2013. As of March 2013, sector councils will no longer receive operating funds from the federal government (HRSDC's Sector Council Program). As it is not possible to continue the CCHRSC without compromising the standard and caliber of work produced, the CCHRSC Board has made the difficult decision to dissolve the organization at that time. 

Employment standards are the minimum standards of employment for workplaces required by law.
