The Manual has been updated as of Mar 22, 2019 and the release will be available through our Ontario Workplace Tribunals Library (OWTL) website or it can be requested directly from MOL.

The ESA 2019 Release 1 March 2019 replaces all prior versions. The previous version was ESA 2018 Release 2 July 2018.  Please share this widely with the legal community and any interested stakeholders.

In 2016, MOL began publishing the P & I Manual bi-annually as an Open Government initiative. In prior years the P & I Manual was published by Thomson Carswell. The OWTL will provide updates as they become available.  The P & I Manual is only available as a PDF document. MOL is currently working on providing the Manual in both languages on

If you wish to request the P & I Manual directly from the Ministry of Labour, please contact them at A PDF copy will be sent to you.  There is currently no distribution list to which you can subscribe in order to receive future updates.
