Ontario Testbook Driving

...Test Driver's Handbook Online Introduction Ontario's goal is to make its roads the safest in North America, and that's why the Ministry of Transportation has introduced a range of measures to improve the behaviour of all drivers, including new ones. In 1999, more than 860 people were killed and more than 84,000 injured on Ontario roads. The social and economic costs of these collisions have been previously estimated at $9 billion annually. Many collisions are caused by driver error - behaviour like following too closely, speed too fast, failure to yield the right of way, and improper turns and lane changes. And statistics show that new drivers of all ages are far more likely than experienced drivers to be involved in serious or fatal collisions. Ontario campaigns against drinking and driving, aggressive driving and promoting the correct use of seat belts and child safety seats are making a difference. Graduated licensing, which lets new drivers gain skills and experience in low-risk environments, is also helping to develop better, safer drivers. The Driver's Handbook Online gives new drivers the basic information they need about learning to drive in Ontario: the rules of the road, safe driving practices and how to get their licence to drive a car, van or small truck. The ministry recommends that all drivers would benefit from taking a course in advanced driver training....

...Question 11 on Page 206 By Giiwedin Kakegabon Business Law BUSL 261 John Kennair April 4, 2014 The case between passenger Rose Alder v. Ontario Cruises Inc. and employee Wallis Boatswain can be explained by more then three ways. Passenger Rose Alder suffered head trauma and recovering from serious injuries because an employee of the provincial government was distracted from his duty. Rose alder then decided to sue the company Ontario Cruises Inc. and the employee involved, which was Wallis Boatswain.

...physical or verbal behaviour that offends or humiliates you...Serious one-time incidents can also sometimes be considered harassment." (Canadian Human Rights Commission, 2013) If left uncheck accusations of workplace harassment could potentially put a business in trouble with the regulatory agencies. In the workplace, employees experience sexual, gender, and racial/ethnic harassment. The Ontario Ministry of Labour has developed recommendations and guidelines as a way to reduce the occurrences of workplace harassment. On the other hand, employers also a responsibility to put in place “best practices” for employees to follow to ensure a safe work environment for everyone. Intervention is needed because persons who experience harassment have a hard time fight back. Because laws on workplace harassment are not sufficient to punish harassers. The act of workplace harassment/violence on the job is considered a legal and ethical issue. According to Ontario law, employers, managers, and unions have to thwart actively and monitor occurrences of workplace harassment to be in compliance with the “Ontario human rights code.” (Labour, 2015) Additionally, employers must also provide training on workplace harassment when they hire new employees. In doing so, employees become more aware of types of workplace harassment so that they know the signs of abuse. Harassment in the workplace is also considered an ethical issue because many individuals have morals. Our morals help us determine......

Workplace Bullying and Bill 168

...HRM855 – The legal Environment | Bullying in the Workplace | The law, its implications, and the future | For: Bob Thompson | By: Anthony DeRose Mike MortonPerna CaputoSaralyn ManzanoTara Knight | 3/24/2015 | | Bullying in the workplace is a serious issue and more prevalent than ever. The University of Windsor’s Odette School of Business in 2011 found 40% of Canadians experience one or more acts of workplace bullying a week. The Canadian Safety Council reports that 75% of victims quit (CBC News). Not only does workplace bullying have serious negative consequences for an individual’s career, it can have a devastating impact on mental and physical health. The damages associated with bullying are exemplified in the following. The legislation in Canada that protects workers from bullying is in its infancy. It does not use the term bullying at any point. Victims of bullying can receive remediation through the common law and statutes. However, as Human Resources Professionals it is our legislated duty to provide safe workplaces for the employees we manage. Additionally, our responsibility is to mitigate the costs of litigation posed by bullying. Proactive HR policies that emphasize education and open communication, combined with legislation that deters this negative pattern of behaviour will help to minimize this risk and associated expenses. ------------------------------------------------- What is workplace bullying? According to the Canadian Centre for......

...The  English Language Proficiency Test (ELPT) was the name of a SAT II last administered in January 2005. It was a one-hour multiple choice test given on English language proficiency by the College Board. A student whose native language was not English could have chosen to take this test instead of or in addition to Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) for college entrance depending upon requirements of the schools in which the student was planning to apply.

...academic leaders promotes education policies and teaching practices that promote a civic culture inclusive of diversity (Butler, 2000). According to Lumby et al. (2007), “a powerful commitment to equality and diversity is viewed by many as integral to progressing further education’s strategic mission. The sector has long been committed to such values, historically focused on an inclusive approach to education and training.” In higher education, in particular, it is essential to developing critical thinking. “The incorporation of diversity into pedagogical practices in higher education changes societal mindsets and challenges the structural arrangement of persons in society” (Campbell, 2000). It has been a high priority in Ontario for more than a decade (Ontario Ministry of Education, 2008). Research shows that: • Diverse leadership plays an important symbolic role in shaping the aspirations of young people (Blau & Stearns, 2003). Failure to provide positive role models can lead to social exclusion, which carries with it very high social and economic costs (Ryan et. al. 2007). • Under the right conditions a more diverse leadership has the potential to raise the performance of the sector to the benefit of learners, staff and the business community (Aguirre & Martinez, 2002). • Visible minority school leaders can be strong role models to visible minority students and can help promote minority students’ academic success, which in turn is essential to...

...the employer has a payroll in Ontario of at least $2.5 million, and the employee has given at least five years of service, the employee is also entitled to statutory severance pay of one week per year to a maximum of 26 weeks. In addition to legislation, the common law (judge-made law) automatically incorporates into every employment relationship (written or not) the concept of “reasonable notice of termination.” human rights legislation aims to protect individuals from certain forms of discrimination. In Ontario the Human Rights Code prohibits discrimination in all aspects of employment, including recruitment and hiring. You as employer must ensure employees are not discriminated against because of their race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, sex, sexual orientation, age, record of offences, marital status, family status and handicap. The Human Rights Code also has specific harassment (including sexual harassment) provisions and recognizes damages for loss of dignity. A breach of the Human Rights Code can also form the basis for a claim of constructive dismissal. The Human Rights Code is enforced by the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario. The broad remedial powers of the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal include monetary compensation, reinstatement, and cease-and-desist orders. We can recommend steps that you can be taken to minimize the risk that an employee will file a human rights complaint with the Ontario Human Rights......

From what I have learnt in the past few weeks, they are all far more present than I had realized. We see it in schools, justice system, job market etc. In the next few pages I will explain how they correlate in Canada today. More specifically relating to aboriginals and Muslims. Canada is home to more than 200 ethnic groups, with 16% of its population (over five million individuals) identifying as a visible minority. Information from the Census showed that Canada’s visible minority population grew 27% from 2001 to 2006, five times faster than the population as a whole. The diversity of Canada’s population is expected to continue to increase over the next two decades. According to projections by Statistics Canada up to 14.4 million Canadians (or about one-third of the population) will be members of a visible minority by 2031. The religious composition of the country is also changing, with some of the largest...

Haspayequity Legislation Worked

...Abstract The purpose of this paper is to discuss if pay equity legislation has worked to eliminate the wage gap between males and females in the workforce. This paper will discuss current pay equity legislation. Federal legislation includes the Canadian Human Rights Act, the Equal Wages Guidelines, and the Canada Labour Code, Part III. Provincial legislation includes the Ontario Pay Equity Act. This paper will also cover a brief time line of the history of pay equity and who is actually covered by pay equity legislation. Lastly, this paper will discuss the gender wage gap and why it exists. Graphs from Statistics Canada will aid in demonstrating the current wage gap and the significant difference in pay for males and females. Has Pay Equity Legislation Worked? Men and women are different in many ways, physically, genetically and anatomically; however they are the same in that they are both human beings who have a right to fair and equal treatment. All throughout history women seem to have taken a back seat to their male counterparts, as women were not officially deemed persons until 1929 after a Supreme Court hearing, they had to struggle to get recognition in the workplace, and to this day are continually fighting for pay equity in the workplace. Pay equity is defined as “the principle that men and women should be compensated equally for work requiring comparable skills, responsibilities, and effort” (Pay Equity, n.d., para. 1). The goal of pay equity “is to stop......
