    Good Morning:

    I am Deborah Kane and I’m here representing the Board of Directors of the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO). We are the professional association representing registered nurses, nurse practitioners and nursing students in Ontario. The region that I represent includes Windsor-Essex, Chatham-Kent and the Lambton area. I thank you for the opportunity to offer RNAO’s recommendations on two important issues facing RNs: The first is to mandate that employers stop replacing RNs with less qualified providers and the second is to expand the scope of practice of RNs by moving forward with independent RN prescribing.

    Canada has international human rights obligations to address the gender wage gap under the Convention Concerning Equal Remuneration for Men and Women for Work of Equal Value and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women. Although these Conventions were ratified by Canada in 1972 and 1981 respectively, Canada is moving in the wrong direction on this imperative for human rights.
