Pregnancy and Parental Leave

As you plan for the arrival of your new child, there are many things to consider and prepare for, including being off work.

To help you navigate your rights and responsibilities, the Association has published A Guide to Pregnancy & Parental Leave. The guide will help you to better understand the Employment Standards Act and the Employment Insurance Act, which dictate how much time off work you may be able to take and how much financial benefit you may receive while you are off.

It also outlines other benefits to which you will have access as an OECTA member, as well as responsibilities you need to be mindful of while you are on leave.
