Temporary Paid Sick Leave Extended to July in Ontario

The program offers three paid days of sick leave for every worker in the province.

ONTARIO - The temporary paid sick leave program in Ontario will be extended into July. 

It was set to expire at the end of this year. The program offers three paid days of sick leave for every worker in the province. The sick leave can be used to get tested for COVID-19 and then isolating, while waiting for results. It can also be used to get vaccinated. 

How the program works is the Province will reimburse employers $200 per day for every employee through the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board.
