Supreme Court Hearings - Tessier Ltée v. Commission de la santé et de la sécurité du travail


Tessier Ltée v. Commission de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (January 17, 2012)
Case # 33935

The issue in this appeal is whether Tessier's business undertakings fall under provincial or federal jurisdiction.

Tessier Ltée provides crane and heavy equipment rental services in Quebec, as well as maintaining and repairing equipment. A small part of the company's activities also includes longshoring, which falls under federal jurisdiction. Tessier unsuccessfully challenged the respondent's 2007 decision that its activities were within provincial jurisdiction over labour relations.
