A Forum on Precarity, Vulnerability, Health and Safety Among Newcomers and Temporary Foreign Workers in Canada
Co-hosted by the Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers (OHCOW) and the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto (DLSPH) in collaboration with the Global Migration and Health Initiative (GloMHI)
Mixing researchers, practitioners and policy-makers all striving to understand, reach and assist the most precarious and vulnerable workers in our society.
With 10 plenary talks (including an all-important wrap-up), and more than 60 concurrent presentations, workshops, panels, and collaborative sessions, the Work, Migration and Health Forum 2018 provided content for a breadth of interests and levels of experience, examining the labour experiences of temporary foreign workers, new immigrants, refugees, working international students and undocumented migrants, and exploring opportunities for effective interventions, including:
• developing responsive policies and regulations
• providing accessible health care, social services, and community support
• delivering workplace health and safety prevention initiatives
• fostering the engagement and empowerment of workers
