Operations Program Directives (OPDs) are developed by the Labour Program to describe the policies and procedures the Labour Program staff must follow when enforcing the Canada Labour Code and related Regulations, or performing associated activities. Broadly speaking, the OPDs outline who does what, when. OPDs and Interpretations, Policies and Guidelines (IPGs) are intended to ensure that programs are delivered effectively and consistently across the country. OPDs and IPGs are available to the general public, and therefore may be used by clients to understand departmental policies, procedures and interpretations.
