The new year will usher in a host of new laws and rules that Cana­di­ans should be aware of, in­clud­ing changes to parental leave ben­e­fits and the sale of ed­i­ble cannabis prod­ucts. On the pro­vin­cial level, 2019 will see new rules re­gard­ing dis­tracted driv­ing penal­ties, rent in­creases, and work­place sex­ual ha­rass­ment. The im­ple­men­ta­tion of a fed­er­ally im­posed car­bon tax on prov­inces that have failed to come up with their own plan to re­duce green­house gas emis­sions could be­come a re­al­ity pend­ing le­gal chal­lenges to the plan by Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe, On­tario Premier Doug Ford, and New Bruns­wick Premier Blaine Higgs. Man­i­toba has also yet to come up with a plan be­fore the fed­eral gov­ern­ment’s Jan. 1 dead­line.
