The XXII World Congress - Canada

Canada was among the founding members of the International Labour Organization (ILO) in 1919 and hosted the ILO administration during the Second World War. We are proud of our progress in improving working conditions for Canadians.

The XXII World Congress embraced the theme of ‘Prevention in the Connected Age: global solutions to achieve safe and healthy work for all’. The Congress addressed this theme by breaking down the information into three major topics:
  • Innovations in Addressing Longstanding Safety and Health Challenges
  • Implications of the Changing World of Work for Occupational Safety and Health
  • Advancing a Culture of Prevention

World Congress

On behalf of the entire health and safety community in Canada, workers, employers, government and researchers, we thank all who attended for participating in the XXII meeting of the World Congress on Safety and Health at Work.
