Thunder Bay IW online info & advocacy session


Join Thunder Bay & District Injured Workers’ Support Group’s Tuesday weekly Zoom session from 10 a.m. to noon. Everyone welcome. Each session will wrap up with a focus on how we can take action on the topics of discussion.

October 17: this session will focus on what happens to injured workers in retirement age when they have been receiving workers compensation benefits. This session follows up from the research presented to the zoom session last May by Prof. Ellen MacEachen on retirement pension poverty among injured workers.

Karl Crevar from ONIWG and John McKinnon and Orlando Buonastella from Injured Workers Community Legal Clinic will identify some of the legislation and policies that lead to poverty among pension age injured workers and discuss the steps we could take to address this injustice.

Contact if you want to join us for these sessions and be on the mailing list to get notices and Zoom links for upcoming sessions.
