Nova Scotia. Labour Board

The Labour Board was established in 2010 as a unified labour board under the Labour Board Act. The integrated board assumed the functions of the Civil Service Employee Relations Board, Construction Industry Panel, Correctional Facilities Employee Relations Board, Highway Workers Employee Relations Board, Labour Relations Board, Labour Standards Tribunal, and Occupational Health and Safety Appeal Panel, all of which were abolished under the Act. The board carries out its functions under the authority of the Civil Service Collective Bargaining Act, Corrections Bargaining Act, Highway Workers Collective Bargaining Act, Occupational Health and Safety Act and Occupational Health and Safety Administrative Penalties Regulations, Pooled Registered Pension Plans Act, Teachers Collective Bargaining Act, and Trade Union Act. It has broad decision-making powers and exercises all the investigative powers of a public enquiry.
