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.

Women’s History Month: Canadian Women’s Accomplishments

When Canada turned 150 years-old in 2017, we created a timeline of Canadian women’s major accomplishments Click here to view the 150 Years of Canadian Women's Accomplishments blog.  Fast forward to 2021, an unanticipated future where everyone is enduring a pandemic, and we felt our timeline was due for a refresh.  In honour of Women’s History Month, we’ve updated our timeline to highlight the incredible milestones that Canadian women have achieved between 2017 and now.  We’ve also decided to take a different approach to the milestones that we’re spotlighting, ensuring that more milestones from Canadian women of colour and Indigenous women are represented.
