Sweeping labour reforms have been passed in Ontario’s legislature.

Among the changes will be a minimum wage increase to 15 dollars an hour, which will be done in two steps.

The minimum wage — which is currently $11.60 an hour — will go up to 14 dollars an hour on January 1st, and up to 15 dollars in 2019.

The wage boost has proved largely popular in government polling –  and with labour advocates – but business groups say it’s being brought in too quickly and will lead to job losses.

The legislation also mandates equal pay for part-time workers, increases vacation entitlements and expands personal emergency leave.
