KW: In doing some research on constructive dismissal and geographic relocation, I came across this Ontario case called Smith v. Viking Helicopter, in which an employer, in this case, an airline, was found NOT liable of constructive dismissal because it moved its business to a different location. Due to the nature of the industry, moving was a distinct possibility and there was nothing in the contract to prevent it, the court ruled. I wish I had found this case when I answered your original Q but I hope it’s not too late to be of assistance now. https://www.canlii.org/en/on/onca/doc/1989/1989canlii4368/1989canlii4368.html’autocompleteStr=Smith%20v.%20Vikin&autocompletePos=1 R
