Propagating the new work disability paradigm for disability benefits & workers' comp systems


The Ontario Summit to Prevent Work Disability was held in Toronto on May 12 and 13, 2010. One-hundred forty-two people attended the event, enthusiastically participating in the interactive workshop-style proceedings. Fourteen workgroups developed creative, ambitious plans for taking immediate actions to improve work disability outcomes in Ontario.

An Action Group was formed to carry the ideas generated in the Summit forward. The first meetings were held June 15 and 28, 2010. All are welcome to join.
