Thunder Bay & District Injured Workers Support Group
The Thunder Bay & District Injured Workers Support Group is a non-profit fully volunteer run organization that provides assistance and peer support to workers and families of workers injured or killed in the workplace.
Many of the people that we support are struggling to make ends meet because of denials of their WSIB (Workplace Safety and Insurance Board) claims and delays in appeals of the denials. Many injured workers and their families live in poverty waiting for their cases to be heard. Our peer support work helps these workers and their families cope.
We provide support to Injured Workers through:
- The sharing of knowledge, fellowship and peer support with Injured Workers, their families and their supports.
- The lobbying of politicians, the WSIB and others with power over Workers Compensation in Ontario.
- The education of the general public, unions and any other individuals and groups with the ability to support or hinder the welfare of Injured Workers.
