Research and Policy Knowledge Exchange Forum on Immigration, Work and Health in British Columbia (2009)
A team of researchers from the Institute for Work & Health in Toronto, has been exploring immigrant workers’ experiences after a work-related injury in Ontario. This research and policy knowledge exchange forum was held to begin examining similar issues in British Columbia. Individuals and organizations working in immigration/migration and occupational health, safety and rights were invited to a seminar in 2009 to share their understanding of immigrants’ labour market experiences and health outcomes.
The information exchange and networking opportunities that
took place at the forum aims to strengthen the development of research, policy
and advocacy around work-related disability prevention and
immigration/migration. The webpage of this forum offers the final report from
the forum and selected presentations.
