The Saskatchewan departments of Labour and Health worked with the province's Human Rights Commission, Service Canada, and the Breastfeeding Committee for Saskatchewan to create the guide.

A news release announcing the publication of the booklet noted that the handbook brings together information on labour standards, human rights, Employment Insurance, and work-family issues.

"At a time when so many of our parents work, we want to give them every tool possible to ensure success in their employer/employee relationships," Labour Minister David Forbes said in the news release.
