Injured Workers Community Legal Clinic (IWC) has developed its library collection over 40 years’ of community work. These resources support and record the Clinic’s activities to improve Ontario’s workers’ compensation system and address injured worker poverty through casework, law reform, research and education.
Submissions, research papers, articles and other publications document changes to compensation legislation, policy and services. The effect of these changes on the injured worker, often in the worker’s own words, is gathered from many sources: workshops and conferences, public consultations and hearings, injured worker groups, media investigations and coverage, participatory action projects, lobbying and advocacy activities. Oral histories & personal accounts are captured in many formats: video, photos, poems, song and theatre script. This material forms a valuable part of the historical record of Ontario’s injured worker movement.
We gratefully acknowledge funding assistance from the Law Foundation on Ontario in establishing the catalogue and its digitization project.
(Mar. 2020 – please note the Library is temporarily closed for in-person use due to COVID-19. However our electronic resources can still be accessed through the catalogue)
