While the holiday is often a special time for many Ontarians, for many injured workers, it is a time that only emphasizes the poverty and isolation we experience all year round. COVID-19 has only increased these problems.
On December 9th at 11am, please join us on Facebook Live or Zoom for a festive gathering featuring singalongs, messages from our allies, and demands to fix the workers’ compensation system.
We will mark the occasion with singalongs, speeches, and a demand for Justice for Injured Workers! Help make this the last Christmas that injured workers needs to spend in poverty.
More details will follow, but please mark your calendars.
