The Institute for Work & Health is one of the leading work and health research centres in the world, and is at the forefront of practice in knowledge transfer and exchange (KTE). The Institute's multidisciplinary scientific staff work together on different projects and benefit from well-established KTE approaches to engaging external research users. IWH staff are also welcome to attend weekly scientific plenary presentations or join various research groups, such as a qualitative research discussion group, a group for young scientists and the pre-pub club where works-in-progress are presented to peers.
We acknowledge the importance of work-life balance and a healthy working environment, and we offer flexible work arrangements and a variety of social events for staff throughout the year.
The Institute for Work & Health (IWH) is committed to developing Canada’s next wave of work-health researchers. IWH supports students and fellows through a variety of training and graduate student programs and initiatives. These programs include financial support, and give young scientists a chance to work with senior researchers who act as their mentors and advisors.
