Interpretations, Policies and Guidelines (IPGs) are developed by the Labour Program to provide interpretations of specific provisions in the Canada Labour Code and related Regulations, and to provide more detailed policies on issues that have been covered generally in an Operational Program Directive (OPD). OPDs and IPGs are intended to ensure that programs are delivered effectively and consistently across the country. OPDs and IPGs are available to the general public, and therefore may be used by clients to understand departmental policies, procedures and interpretations.
