Do you know your obligations under the AODA?
The HHCA is hosting the AODA seminar on Monday, October 20th from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. at Construction house.

In this session you will:
Identify company obligations under the AODA including Customer Service Standard and future standards
Learn your legal requirements
Review the benefits of compliance and liability for non-compliance Featuring Leah Simon, Employment and Labour lawyer at Sherrard Kuzz LLP. Register here for only $25!
