Work, Migration and Health Forum

| Dalla Lana School of Public Health

The Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers (OHCOW) and the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto, in collaboration with the Global Migration and Health Initiative, invite you to a forum on precarity, vulnerability, health and safety among newcomers and temporary foreign workers in Canada.

The Work, Migration and Health Forum 2018 examines their labour experiences and explores 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; and fostering the engagement and empowerment of workers. The Forum welcomes migrants, community organizations, service providers, clinicians, advocates, policy makers, students and researchers to share knowledge, discuss challenges, and compare best practices, to move forward the agenda for healthy and safe work in Canada.

Keynote speakers include ​Dr. Santino Severoni of the World Health Organization (WHO) and Sara Mojtehedzadeh of the Toronto Star.
See Call for abstracts (deadline Feb. 28) and Registration details for the Forum and May 7 public lecture.

Migrant workers, students, and non-profit community partners are fully or partially subsidized by participants paying registration fees in full. Prospective participants who require additional financial assistance should email by March 20.
