|Description:||We offer innovative, interdisciplinary undergraduate and degree programs in Labour Studies and Work and Society that are widely recognized as among the best in the world. Our undergraduate and graduate students have high rates of success in securing careers in labour law, community development, Industrial relations, health & safety, lawyer, mediator, disability case worker, civil servant, community development, policy analysis, teaching, occupational health and safety, labour research and labour organizing.
Our students enjoy learning in a cooperative, intellectually exciting environment. In their classes they engage with the many and varied issues that animate our contemporary worlds of work: What are the barriers to gender and racial equality at work? Are our workplaces safe and healthy? What are the reasons for the growth of precarious forms of work? Can we ‘green’ the economy? What are the solutions to these issues? As they were in decades past, are unions a part of the solutions? We are a small program. Students get to know their professors. Teaching is very important to us. In the classroom we seek to inform, challenge and learn from our students. Our faculty are at the forefront of research and critical labour issues in Canada and around the world. Our staff is committed to providing excellent and friendly advice and service to our students.
