Non-profit boards: try not to ‘Zoom’ past equitable governance

August 31st, 2020 by Karly Wilson

This article was first published on rabble.ca.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had the unique ability to highlight social areas where inequality and inequity have been lurking for ages. Gender discrimination in the workplace is no exception.

There have been countless articles addressing the extra burden that the pandemic has placed on women, often centring the many complexities of domestic labour division and child care. Even without these larger issues, smaller forms of discrimination, or microaggressions, persist during the pandemic as well, even as our work lives have moved almost entirely online.

It has never been easier to work remotely, and professionals across the country have been lauding the advancements in technology that have made working possible during the pandemic. Zoom meetings, “fax by email,” Facetime calls, constant texting — they all allow employers to replicate the workplace experience for employees from the comfort of their home offices (or living room couches, or kitchens, or bedrooms). For many women, these technologies have not only replicated the issues they already experienced at work, but have exacerbated them.

UPDATE: Some Helpful Clarifications from the LTB Regarding Evictions

August 5th, 2020 by Iler Campbell

This post is an update to our April 9, 2020 blog post.

The Ontario Superior Court issued an Order on March 19, 2020, suspending evictions until the end of the calendar month in which the provincial state of emergency is terminated. In accordance with the Order, the Landlord and Tenant Board stated that it would be suspending all hearings related to evictions unless the matter is urgent, such as a serious and ongoing health or safety issue at the residential complex or a serious illegal act that occurred at the residential complex. Despite the suspension of non‑urgent evictions, Landlords were still able to serve eviction notices and subsequently file an eviction application.

The Reopening Ontario (A Flexible Response to Covid‑19) Act, 2020 became law on July 24, 2020. Section 17 of this statute states “Unless it has been terminated before this section comes into force, the COVID‑19 declared emergency is terminated and Ontario Regulation 50/20 (Declaration of Emergency) is revoked.”  Therefore, as of August 1, 2020, residential evictions are no longer suspended.
