Are you a member of a union? Does your union advocate for your right to work in a safe space, re: your allergies? How does that work out?

Doesn't Bill C-45 apply?
What is Bill C-45?

Bill C-45 is federal legislation that amends the Canadian Criminal Code. Bill C-45 became law on March 31, 2004 and is now the new Section 217.1 in the Criminal Code which reads:

"2.17.1 Every one who undertakes, or has the authority, to direct how another person does work or performs a task is under a legal duty to take reasonable steps to prevent bodily harm to that person, or any other person, arising from that work or task."
The bill established new legal duties for workplace health and safety, and imposes serious penalties for violations that result in injuries or death. It also establishes rules for attributing criminal liability to organizations, including corporations, for the acts of their representatives and also creates a legal duty for all persons directing work to take "reasonable steps" to ensure the safety of workers and the public.

Daughter: asthma, allergies to egg, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, most legumes (not soy and green beans) & penicillin. Developing hayfever type allergies.
Husband: no allergies
Me: Oral Allergy Syndrome, Allergic to Birch trees

I am newly diagnosed with multiple and possibly life threatening allergies. My union is fully supportive. They have suggested I write a letter to management stating I have allergies but not to be specific. I am also to include that if necessary I may need immediate assistance and time off no questions asked. They are prepared to fight on my behalf if need be
