What Ontario’s 3-day paid sick leave program promises workers

After Ontario Premier Doug Ford promised “one of the best” paid sick day programs in North America, the government unveiled its highly-anticipated paid sick leave program, promising up to $600 for three days of missed work.

Officials also announced the provincial government program could see a $500 top-up to the Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit (CRSB) program conditional on federal approval.

Workers who are sick or are experiencing symptoms, who need to get vaccinated or have COVID-19-related mental health issues will qualify for the benefit.

Travis Dhanraj breaks down the plan and the reaction.
