Canada is a ‘double jurisdiction’ legal environment. That means that based on our federalist system employees working within the same province can be subject to different laws. There are some industries which are governed by the Federal law as they are Canada-wide industries, crossing borders with their business, where as many industries are governed by Provincial law as their business pertains specifically to the province in which they are operating.
For instance someone working at a bank is governed by the Canada Labour Code, whereas the employee working in the corner store, accountant office, or even for an insurance company owned by the same bank would be under the Ontario Employment Standards Act, 2000
The Federal matters are ones that were considered of national importance. From grain elevators in 1867 when the Constitution Act, 1867 was signed, to Uranium Processing today.
