CIHR Team in Gender, Environment and Health

This pan-Canadian interdisciplinary team was created in order to contribute to the development of new approaches and methods for the integration of sex and gender (s/g) in environmental and occupational health research.
Financed by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), this team is composed of researchers, partners and graduate students. It offers a place of support and discussion on concepts and methods related to the inclusion of s/g considerations in environmental and occupational health research.

The invisible that hurts

The interdisciplinary team L’invisible qui fait mal concentrates its research efforts on women's work and in particular on its least visible, most problematic aspects.  The objective of our research:  to describe faithfully the arduous tasks done by an increasing number of women and the difficulties they encounter when they try to claim their rights to health and safety at work.  We want to help them in their efforts to find solutions to these problems.
