Introducing the Pay Equity Solution for Small Business Do-It-Yourself Toolkit, created by Ontario’s Pay Equity Office. This toolkit will help you analyze your compensation practices and support your business while also complying with the law. The pay equity toolkit guides you through seven steps to complete a pay equity analysis.
The entire toolkit consists of:
- The Toolkit (pdf)
- Explainer videos accompanying each step of the toolkit
- Explanatory infographics
Notes for users:
1. Downloading the Toolkit
If your device has defaults set to open PDF files in a web browser, you may encounter an error message indicating Adobe Reader 8 is required. Before downloading newer versions of Adobe, try right-clicking the toolkit in your downloads folder and selecting “open with” your existing Adobe program.
The toolkit and supporting resources are for information only and are intended to assist employers in complying with the Pay Equity Act. It is not to be construed or considered as legal advice, nor warranted to be complete and accurate and may be amended without notice. It does not restrict Review Officers of the Pay Equity Office in their interpretation and determination of matters under the Act.

We are asking users to complete a short survey (less than 2 minutes) here . You are also welcome to email your questions or suggestions to AskPayEquity@ontario.ca.
