Access to Work and Job Retention

Labour market integration is a key factor in the adaptation of immigrants to the host society. However, the specific links between work, immigration and health and social service interventions remain under-explored by researchers. The urgency of investing in this field arises from concrete concerns within health and social services, particularly in the social context of a labour shortage in Quebec, where foreign workers are particularly numerous.

The research projects in this field of expertise are grouped into two main areas: issues arising from temporary migrant programmes (labour rights, health and safety at work, integration, geographic and social mobility interaction, etc.); and the health and safety (OHS) and re-adaptation/return to work trajectories of immigrant workers.
