Upcoming Events: Decent Work

The Decent Work and Health Network emerged out of a coalition between HPAP and the Fight for $15 and Fairness. In the past year, members have worked tirelessly to influence Ontario’s Changing Workplaces Review by calling for paid sick days, the elimination of sick notes, and decent work for all.

Our experiences in health care and a growing body of research have demonstrated that precarious work is detrimental to health. To be healthy, people in Ontario need safe working conditions, decent hours, paid sick days, and a living wage.

The Decent Work and Health Network is a collaboration between Health Providers Against Poverty and the Worker’s Action Centre

Ontario’s Changing Workplaces Review is a once in a generation opportunity to change the laws around employment and address the growing precarious work in the province. The aim of this event is to develop a health sector response to the Interim Report of the Changing Workplaces Review, since it is well recognized that precarious work leads to poor health.
