As of April 1, 1994, all new drivers applying for their first car or motorcycle licence enter Ontario's Graduated Licensing System (GLS). Graduated licensing lets new drivers get driving experience and skills gradually. The two-step licensing process takes at least 20 months to complete.
To apply for a licence, you must be at least 16 years old and pass a vision test and a test of your knowledge of the rules of the road and traffic signs. After you pass these tests, you will get a Class G1 or M1 licence and a driver information package for new drivers. You must pass two road tests to become fully licensed.
New drivers earn full driving privileges in two stages and have five years to complete the program (Classes G1, G2, M2 or M2 with condition "L") and graduate to a full licence (Classes G, M or M with condition L).

Graduated Licensing for Automobile Drivers
Class G1
New drivers of passenger vehicles learn to drive with six important conditions with a G1 licence. A new driver must hold a G1 licence for a minimum of 12 months before attempting the G1 road test. This time can be reduced to eight months if you successfully complete a Ministry-approved Beginner Driver Education Course . Drivers earn more privileges after passing their G1 road test.
As a G1 driver, you are required to: * maintain a zero blood alcohol level while driving; * be accompanied by a fully licensed driver, who has at least four years driving experience, and a blood alcohol level of less than .05 (accompanying drivers 21 and under must have zero per cent), in case he/she needs to take over the wheel; * ensure the accompanying driver is the only other person in the front seat; * ensure the number of passengers in the vehicle is limited to the number of working seat belts; * refrain from driving on Ontario's "400-series" highways or on high speed expressways such…...

...injured on Ontario roads. The social and economic costs of these collisions have been previously estimated at $9 billion annually. Many collisions are caused by driver error - behaviour like following too closely, speed too fast, failure to yield the right of way, and improper turns and lane changes. And statistics show that new drivers of all ages are far more likely than experienced drivers to be involved in serious or fatal collisions. Ontario campaigns against drinking and driving, aggressive driving and promoting the correct use of seat belts and child safety seats are making a difference. Graduated licensing, which lets new drivers gain skills and experience in low-risk environments, is also helping to develop better, safer drivers. The Driver's Handbook Online gives new drivers the basic information they need about learning to drive in Ontario: the rules of the road, safe driving practices and how to get their licence to drive a car, van or small truck. The ministry recommends that all drivers would benefit from taking a course in advanced driver training. http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/dandv/driver/handbook/ (1 of 2) [11/12/2003 3:36:49 PM] Driver's Handbook Online - Introduction As you read, remember that this is only a guide.

The Ending of Mandatory Retirement in Ontario

...The Ending of Mandatory Retirement in Ontario As of December 12, 2006 Ontario residents can decide for themselves whether they want to continue working past the age of 65 or whether they want to terminate their employment and start to enjoy their retirement. In Ontario, a new law, Bill 211 came into effect “Ending of Mandatory Retirement Statue Law Amendment Act of 2005.” The bill was given Royal Assent on December 12, 2005 however in order to allow employers time to make the necessary provisions and adjustments it did not come into effect until one year later.1 This law amends the Ontario Human Rights Code as well as a number of other statutes that prohibit mandatory retirement at age 65, except in cases where it could be justified as a “bona fide occupational requirement” determined under the code. A bona fide occupational requirement compels the employer to show that they cannot accommodate the employee without undue hardship, taking into consideration such factors as cost, health and safety issues. A bona fide occupational requirement is allowed under the Ontario Human Rights Code because of the nature of the employment. They must also establish that the requirement was adopted in good faith and that the requirement is necessary and rationally connected to the performance of the job. The abolishment of mandatory retirement has been under construction for quite some time now. The Ontario Human Rights Commission released the paper: “Time for Action –......

Standard: Enhanced: Estimated production volume 3,000 units 4,000 units Direct-material cost $25 per unit $40 per unit Direct labor per unit 3 hours at $12 per hour 4 hours at $12 per hour Ontario's overhead of $800,000 can be identified with three major activities: order processing ($150,000), machine processing ($560,000), and product inspection ($90,000). These activities are driven by number of orders processed, machine hours worked, and inspection hours, respectively. Data relevant to these activities follow: Orders Processed Machine Hours Worked Inspection Hours Standard 300 18,000 2,000 Enhanced 200 22,000 8,000 Total 500 40,000 10,000 Top management is very concerned about declining profitability despite a healthy increase in sales volume.

Health Status of Aboriginal People in Ontario

...Health Status of Aboriginal people in Ontario By: Taylor Veran Health Careers and Informatics Lorrie Lough November 1st, 2012 The majority of health issues that the Aboriginal community faces are related directly and indirectly to social, economic, cultural and political areas. Infrastructure, housing, employment, income, environmental and education are connected to the individual and community based effects of health. The health status of aboriginals in Ontario is very poor. There are a lot of health care needs for aboriginals that live in Northwest Ontario, also because the population is so high. The first nations population is the largest (958,000) Followed by the Metis (266,000) and the Inuit (51,000). Every year the population of aboriginals increases. The health status, diseases and life style of these people should be monitored and taken care of to an extent. Aboriginal population is relatively young in Ontario. The birth rate is two times the rate of the Canadian population, which is very high. Aboriginals seem to rank lower education, have higher rates of unemployment, along with higher rates of smoking, alcohol and drug abuse, which can lead to needing a lot of health care. (Dr. Chandrakant P. Shah. 2005, page. 3) Some may argue that the health issues are genetic, but health means more than the absence of disease.

Improving Insider Trading Enforcement in Canada (Ontario)

...CAN ONTARIO IMPROVE ITS INSIDER TRADING REGULATION AND ENFORCEMENT BY ADOPTING POLICIES USED IN THE USA? Prepared by Muhammad Bilal Amjad 2B Accounting and Financial Management ID 20429857 AFM 231: Business Law School of Accounting and Finance University of Waterloo Friday, August 9, 2013 Abstract The purpose of this paper is to present potential suggestions on how Canada (more specifically, Ontario) can improve its insider trading regulation and enforcement. In order to do so, this paper will compare the insider trading regulation and enforcement in Canada and the USA. It will examine whether or not Ontario should take from the methods used in the USA in order to strengthen its regulation and enforcement of insider trading. Ontario was chosen in particular because securities regulation in Canada falls under the jurisdiction of provincial governments, with Ontario being home to Canada’s largest securities market. Introduction Insider trading is a subject of great significance in security markets all across the globe. Not only does it violate securities law in Canada and many other countries, it is also seen as highly unethical. It applies not only to equity, but also to bond and option markets. Insider trading is deemed illegal primarily because it is contrary to the public trusts upon which security markets operates; it undermines investor confidence, and as a result, discourages investment (Dessaulles, 2013, p. 9). In addition, it is viewed as being immoral......

Ontario Wants Compensation for Deal Fallout

...This article regards the massive free trade pact between Europe and Canada which was agreed upon in secret by the Federal Conservatives. This pact allows Canadian companies’ access to 28 European Union countries, however, this negotiation comes with a price. Ontario has three major concerns with this deal. The first concern is the increase of tonnage in European cheeses. This affects manufacturers: Queen’s Park will want full reimbursement for the producers. The next issue concerns the wine producers. The tax based on the value of the product will be replaced by a flat fee that is linked to the volume of the product. For instance, a 750-millilitre bottle of wine costing $100 would be the same as on one costing $10. This revision can damage Canada’s wine industries. The final concern is the possible modification in the health budget. The deal involves a 2 year extension of a pharmacy’s licence of selling medical drugs, which could potentially increase drug costs. Some pharmacists believe there will be an extra $1.2 billion payment on Ontario’s consumers and governments yearly. This deal could also possibly cost 150,000 Canadian jobs. The article demonstrates what we learned in the geography course about value of foreign trade between countries. The value of foreign trade indicates a country’s involvement in world economy. In this article it displays the involvement between Canada and Europe. (P.g. 14, Making Connections Canada’s Geography) This pact affects both Canada’s and...

Abstract Global warming is one of the most potentially disastrous issues facing mankind in the early 21st century, considered to be caused by man-made greenhouse gas emissions. Approximately 30% of the man-made carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions causing global warming is created by the burning of fossil fuels to produce electricity or used as a direct energy source. The use of solar energy to pre-heat water for industrial, commercial and institutional and residential purposes can reduce electricity usage by up to 2% to 6% in southern Ontario. Adding the emissions from using natural gas directly to heat water a figure of 5% to 17% reduction in CO2 emissions can be derived by......

School Uniforms Should Not Be Made Mandatory in All Schools in Ontario

...The majority of all religious High Schools in Ontario have made it mandatory for students to wear a uniform. In my opinion, school uniforms should not be made mandatory for students in every high school in Ontario. This should not occur because the cost of uniforms can get expensive, it discourages students from displaying self-expression, and it could give school's bad reputations. First of all, uniforms should not be made mandatory in all high schools in Ontario since it does not allow for the student to express themselves. Students want to be given the freedom to be creative with their life, in school; they do this by their hair style and clothing. Students can put their own twist on their outfits, which make them unique, if they had to wear a uniform, everyone would look the same which leaves no room for originality. This also means that students cannot be prominent from one another. Students express their emotions and hobbies through the outfits that they wear which display many positive features about them whereas Uniforms will often display the more negative aspects of a person. Lastly, uniforms are uncomfortable. Students do not always feel comfortable in some clothes, but are given no choice because the uniform for a certain school will not change for them. Also, without a uniform, students can wear what they feel they are comfortable in as well as what makes them feel good about themselves, but uniforms restrict this to approximately two different options for......

Grade 12 Ontario Students Studying Canadian Literature(U1A6)

...Grade 12 Ontario Students Studying Canadian Literature This essay proves that graduating students in Ontario should only study literature in a Grade 12 English course. While good writers exist in all cultures, Ontario students should only study literature written by Canadian writers. This is because all Ontario students should become familiar with literature from our province. Three reasons for this are; the need to focus on our own Canadian culture and despite being surrounded by many other cultures, the need to promote and establish our own writers is there, as well as the need to encourage younger Canadian authors. Students in Ontario taking English should only study Canadian literature because we are completely swamped and overrun by the American culture that is exposed to us on a daily basis. This has always been a Canadian tradition because we have always been a branch plant or bi-product if another country starts with England and France, meaning that our country has never had the chance and time to develop into something of its own since we have always been under the thumb of a more powerful foreign culture. This has led to students in Ontario studying Shakespeare and other British writers: today they may also study American authors such as Fitzgerald. But many schools limit a student’s exposure to the Canadian novel to ISP reading lists. In this sense, Canada is an attic in which we have stored American and British literature without considering our own. 1 No wonder...

...Pre 20th Century Mental Institutions|| Melissa Hook HSP 3M1 |October 1st, 2011| A Cruel Fate: Torture in the Asylums Since the dawn of time, human nature has proven to be uncompassionate, aggressive and horrific. This idea is ultimately evident as we examine the horrendous procedures, and conditions of pre 20th century insane asylums. In his Journal of Social History, C. Rosenberg (1997) writes “Institutions traditionally seen as expressions of reform and benevolence have increasingly come to be seen as modes of enforcing social control”. Regardless of the barbaric and obscene methods of treatment, mental institutions were notorious for their insanely high levels of social control and complete ignorance of the rights of the patients. Inhabitants of these institutions experienced harsh and sometimes life threatening living conditions, and very poor nutrition and treatment. Essentially, the inmates of pre 20th century insane asylums were treated in a comparable manor as to that of an animal. The seriousness of these conditions is affirmed in the article, A Historical Sketch of the Emergence of Liverpool Psychiatry (Valliant 1963). The author states that these unfortunates were confined and cruelly repressed, beaten, starved, and manacled for acts over which they had no control. They were kept in filthy rat-inrested dungeons without light or clothing and the only medical treatments were shots in the dark such as ‘Whirling Chairs’ ( para- 3 Valliant 1963). Figure 1.1......
