Canada’s Labour Code Stipulates Free Menstrual Products for Employees in Federally Regulated Workplaces!

Beginning Friday, All Federally Regulated Employers Including Federal Public Service Departments, Crown Corporations, Banks, Airports and Train Yards Must Provide Free Menstrual Products in All Employee Washrooms.

The Change to The Canada Labour Code Announced in May 2023 Stipulated That as of Dec. 15, These Workplace Washrooms Must Have Free Tampons and Menstrual Pads, As Well as A Covered Disposal Container in Every Toilet Stall.

The Products Are Intended for Employee Use, Not for Members of the Public.

Rachel Ettinger Started a Petition Calling for This in 2020 That Was Eventually Presented in The House of Commons by Her MP.

“We Have to Look at Menstrual Products as A Necessity Item, Just Like Toilet Paper,” Said Ettinger. “You Can’t Provide a Truly Inclusive Space for Your Employees Without Providing Menstrual Products.”

Ettinger Is the Founder of Here for Her, A Social Enterprise Focused On Health Education Across Canada. Along with Other Organizations, It Provided the Government with Recommendations for This Move.


Statement Made by Minister of Labour and Seniors, The Honourable Seamus O’Regan Jr.

“We Don’t Expect You to Bring Your Own Toilet Paper to Work, So Why Should We Expect You to Bring Pads and Tampons? We’re Providing Menstrual Products to Employees in Federally Regulated Workplaces Because Periods Are a Fact of Life and There Should Be No Stigma.”

 – The Honourable Seamus O’Regan Jr., Minister of Labour and Seniors
