SIGN THE PETITION!




  Mental Health Commission of Canada - Darrell Powell and the CIWS achieved stakeholder status for disabled workers on the new Mental Health Commission of Canada on October 15th 2007. This will draw attention to the mental health implications of dealing with workers compensation boards and the mental health crises faced by people disabled at work. (more details)

Injured Workers Stories:
We are compiling anonymous evidence from injured workers about any abuse they have experienced by workers compensation systems across Canada. We do not handle individual cases but will use your case as an example of WCB wrongdoing. A page has been added to the CIWS website where injured workers can tell us their story. This includes an online form to make it easier. See http://www.ciws.ca/injured_workers_stories.htm

Media Outreach:
Ongoing letters are being sent out to a wide range of reporters across Canada. The media list is continually being expanded and updated.

Petition:
The CIWS has an online petition in progress. We are collecting signatures to call for a federal public judicial inquiry into Criminal Code and Charter of Rights violations by workers compensation boards across Canada.

Disabled And Injured Workers Charter:
The CIWS is developing an DISABLED AND INJURED WORKERS CHARTER

Election Watch:
The CIWS is developing a strategy to encourage the election of provincial Ministers who will take action for injured workers issues. See ELECTION WATCH
