    2017 was an interesting year for the Canadian workplace, and many big changes are on the horizon. The Ontario government’s passing of Bill 148, the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, 2017, will affect employers' rights and obligations beginning in early 2018, and the impending legalization of marijuana slated for July 2018 has employers considering the impact on their business.

Dr. Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Endowed Chair at the Graduate College of Social Work.
