What are the overtime rules in Canada?

Employees in Canada are eligible for overtime pay for every hour worked over 44 hours per week. The overtime pay rate is 150% of an employee’s regular rate of pay. In any given week, employees cannot be required to work beyond 48 hours unless agreed upon in writing by the employee and employer. 


To ensure you fairly compensate employees for hours worked, you can work with a local PEO. A PEO provider can administer payroll for your employees, including pay for overtime hours.
