The Employment Standards Act says that wages include your regular salary, vacation pay, commissions, overtime, holiday pay, allowances for room and board, and termination pay.
They don't include tips, employer contributions to a benefit plan, payments from a benefit plan, or expenses that an employer pays for, such as travel.

A weekly tenancy is a rental agreement that does not have a fixed term and where the tenant pays rent each week. It automatically renews every week unless the landlord or the tenant takes legal steps to end it.
When the Crown decides to stop prosecuting a person, the charges against that person are either withdrawn or stayed.
If your charges are withdrawn:
- You will have no more court appearances for the charges.
- You will not be found guilty of the charges.
- You are free to go unconditionally.
A witness is someone who gives information in court to help a judge decide a case. For example, a witness might be a friend or family member who can tell the judge what they know about things like your relationship with your child.
A witness usually gives this information by testifying in court. All parties in a case get the chance to ask a witness questions through direct examination, cross-examination, and re-examination. The judge may also ask the witness questions.
