In Ontario, the public sector is made up of any job that receives funding from the provincial government. That includes a lot of services and infrastructure we rely on every day. The following jobs will all be affected by the hiring freeze:

  • Universities and Colleges: This includes both professors and any administrative staff the secondary schools employ
  • Crown Agencies: These are any government-funded research facilities and some museums such as the ROM
  • The Government of Ontario: The government itself is in the public sector, meaning there is a freeze on hiring aids, legislative workers, and any other official provincial position
  • Hospitals: This is a big one as it will affect hospital administration but also doctors and nurses
  • Municipalities: A lot of municipalities receive funding from the province so any municipal workers and services may also be affected by the freeze
  • Ontario Power Sector: While Hydro was big in the news for being privatized they are still owned in part by the province and therefore fall under the private sector
  • School Boards: This is another big one as it involves school board administration but also both public elementary and high school teachers all over Ontario
