New Regulations under the Canada Labour Code

Employers in Canada are required to provide menstrual products for their employees as per the new regulation in place since December 15, 2023. This new regulation is a significant step towards promoting menstrual health and hygiene awareness in the workplace.

At its core, this regulation is about ensuring that menstruating persons have barrier-free access to menstrual products in the workplace. Employers must provide menstrual products in all toilet rooms in workplaces controlled by the employer. This means that all toilet rooms will need to have menstrual products. This regulation provides unrestricted access to menstrual products, and better protects menstruating employees.

Providing employees with access to menstrual products supports better health outcomes and workplace productivity while reducing the stigma often associated with menstruation. Workplace access to products will reduce the medical and psychological impacts of reusing products, using products for longer than indicated, and not using any products at all.

When choosing menstrual products to provide, consider the needs of your employees. You may want to provide a variety of products to accommodate different preferences and needs. It’s important to choose menstrual products that are clean, hygienic, and easy to use. You may also want to consider the environmental impact of the products you choose.

In conclusion, the new Canadian regulation requiring employers to provide menstrual products in the workplace is a positive step towards promoting menstrual health and hygiene awareness. As an employer, you have the opportunity to show your employees that you care about their well-being by providing clean, hygienic, and barrier-free access to menstrual products. This can lead to increased employee satisfaction, productivity, and retention.
