National Survey on Harassment and Violence at Work in Canada
The Centre for Research & Education on Violence Against Women & Children at Western University is working with researchers at the University of Toronto and the Canadian Labour Congress to launch a national survey on workplace harassment and violence. Violence and harassment at work remains a major social problem in Canada. The survey will shed light on the prevalence of violence and harassment in our workplaces. It will look at how workers who are marginalized due to their social location and/or their precarious employment status are uniquely impacted. It will examine the links between sexual harassment and other forms of violence in the workplace.
