On December 6, 2018 the Ontario Legislative Assembly passed the Restoring Trust, Transparency and Accountability Act, 2018 (“Bill 57”), an omnibus bill that, among other things, postpones the coming into force of the Pay Transparency Act, 2018 (the “Pay Transparency Act”). For details about the Pay Transparency Act, see this article by Titus Totan and Michael S. Richards.

Subject to certain exceptions, the Pay Transparency Act was to come into force January 1, 2019. Bill 57 delays that January 1 commencement date to a date to be named by proclamation of the Lieutenant Governor.
