– Health, Injured workers & Workers’ Compensation: Some Rethinking –
We hope you and your families are well. This will be our 54th year of working with the injured worker community! We would like to invite you to join us at our Annual General Meeting. Come and hear a report on current issues in workers’ compensation and the activities of the past year.
Our keynote speaker this year is IWC board member Robert Storey, recently retired from the Sociology Department of McMaster University. Robert has written extensively on workers’ compensation issues and will share his analysis of how society has defined “health,” how that has affected injured workers and workers’ compensation and what that means for rebuilding the injured worker movement.
The community legal clinic has a volunteer Board of Directors that is accountable to our funder Legal Aid Ontario along with the IWC staff, for the management of the clinic. For more information about the Board see the message below and our website: iwclc.org
The past few years have been very challenging. IWC survived the cuts to legal clinic funding and then the pandemic and we continue to stand up for injured workers. We would like to thank you for your involvement and support.

INJURED WORKERS COMMUNITY LEGAL CLINIC
Correen, Chris, Rebecca, David, Audrey, Kathrin, Tebasum, Orlando, Francis & John
Injured Workers Community Legal Clinic’s Board
IWC is a non-profit community‐based organization funded by Legal Aid Ontario that has been serving injured workers free of charge since 1969 through legal services, law reform, public legal education, and community development. The Clinic works for and with injured workers. As an organization we work collaboratively and are committed to diversity, equity and inclusion.
We have a volunteer Board of Directors that consists of injured workers and supporters from the broader injured worker community of researchers, advocates and activists. The Board oversees the clinic’s general performance and community accountability, provides input on law and policy reform, reviews policy, provides advice on programs and activities. The Board term is two years. The Clinic serves injured workers across the province and we welcome volunteers from any region. An election will be held at the January 24th Annual General Meeting. We currently have nominees approved by the recruitment committee to fill all of the Board positions coming open this year. However we welcome interested volunteers and there are opportunities for those not elected to the Board to assist the work of the clinic.
Board members actively participate (by video, phone or in-person) in 9 regular meetings a year, a strategic planning session with staff, and the Annual General Meeting. Directors can also volunteer for committees dealing with specific issues. Training and other supports are provided.
If you are interested in joining our Board in the future or want to learn more about what that involves please contact David Newberry (ext. 25) at 416 461-2411 / 1 833 461-2411 or firstname.lastname@example.org
