Keep Hydro Public
Premier Kathleen Wynne and Liberal MPPs across our province have moved to sell shares of Hydro One, a public asset that belongs to us all. Bought and paid for with our taxes, Hydro One generates hundreds of millions every year for schools, hospitals and other vital public institutions and services in our communities.
Ontario’s New Democrats have launched a new website – youpaytheprice.ca – as part of our aggressive, multi-platform, anti-hydro privatization campaign.

New GWL Insurance Programs available to Thames Valley Children's Centre Staff
Early Referral Services will assist TVCC staff during a longer term sick leave prior to an application to LTD. ERS offers case management, medical coordination and rehabilitation services with the goal of reducing LTD claims and costs through early intervention and ensuring staff are receiving the supports they need.
At Work Services is for TVCC staff with a medical condition who are continuing to be at work on a regular basis, but may need some extra support in terms of coordination of health services, referrals to specialists, etc. in order to remain at work.
Details of these two programs are still being worked out along with subsequent changes to services provided by Occupational Health Services. Please speak with your Stewards if you have concerns or questions.
