Survey on Injured Workers and Poverty

Workers compensation was designed so that injured workers could live in
dignity. But injured workers groups and advocates are seeing increasing
poverty in their community. The Ontario Network of Injured Workers is
conducting a province-wide survey to document this poverty and raise
the issue on Injured Workers Day on June 1, 2009 at Queen's Park. We
are looking for injured workers with long-term (or permanent) injuries
or illnesses to complete the survey.

To fill out the survey on line,
please go to To print a copy of the survey, you can go to and look for the ONIWG
survey on the right-hand side of the page.

The deadline to be included
in the report to be presented on Injured Workers Day, June 1, 2009 has
been extended to May 10, 2009. For more information, please contact
