Injured Worker Participatory Research Conference

Attention Toronto-Area Injured Workers:

Do you want to

- Share Concerns with other injured workers?

- Contribute Ideas for potential solutions to injured worker concerns?

- Help Change how injured workers are treated?

If so, join an exciting new research project exploring the views and needs of injured workers, including RETURN TO WORK and COMPENSATION ISSUES. The aim of the project is to involve injured workers as RESEARCHERS and PARTICIPANTS. If you have time and creative ideas, we want you!

The project will kick-off with an information-sharing and action-planning conference to be held in Toronto March 30 - April 1. Transportation and childcare expenses of participants will be reimbursed, and an honorarium for participation will also be provided.
