In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Social Affairs, Science and Technology - December 6, 2012


Social Affairs, Science and Technology

Senators continue their review of Bill C-44, which would allow for work leave when a child is critically ill, dies, or disappears as the "probable result of a crime." Employment Insurance benefits would also be extended to those caring for a critically ill child.

Jean-François Roussy and Laurent Quintal from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada, Denise Page of the Canadian Cancer Society, Marie-Adèle Davis from the Canadian Paediatric Society and Stephen Moreau of Cavalluzzo Shilton McIntyre Cornish LLP all testify.

Senators conduct clause-by-clause consideration for the bill during the second part of the meeting.

UPDATE: Bill C-44 received royal assent on December 14.
