Ontario Extending COVID-19 Paid Sick Days

Today the province announced that the government is extending its Worker Income Protection Benefit program, which provides paid sick days, until July 31, 2022. This program keeps workers safe and ensures they do not lose pay if they need to miss work for reasons related to COVID-19.
