On December 4, the National Assembly adopted Bill 21, An Act Respecting Mainly the Implementation of Agreements on Labour between the Government of Quebec and the Mohawk Council of Kahnawake.

  • The Act Respecting Industrial Accidents and Occupational Diseases
  • The Building Act
  • The Act Respecting Labour Relations, Vocational Training and Workforce Management in the Construction Industry 
  • The Occupational Health and Safety Act

The bill follows up on the Labour agreements between the Government of Québec and the Mohawk Council of Kahnawake, approved by decree on July 24, 2014, which provides for the creation of a labour bureau that will have a leadership role in the formulation and implementation of harmonious interaction between the regimes in Québec and in Kahnawake, as well as a liaison committee that will be created after the labour bureau is instituted.

The liaison committee will be composed of representatives from:

  • The Mohawk Council of Kahnawake
  • The Régie du bâtiment du Québec
