It’s election day throughout Ontario, where voters will be electing new mayors, members of council, school board trustees, etc.
Ontario employees who are eligible to vote are allowed 3 consecutive hours to do so without a reduction in pay. However, this may not mean extra time off – employers only have to make adjustments if an employee’s schedule today would not otherwise allow them the time to vote. For example, an employee scheduled to work from 9 to 5 today would still have time from 5 to 8 to cast their ballot. In other words, being stuck at work is no excuse for not voting!
