Symposium on Occupational Cancers
About the Symposium
A research project was conducted by the Occupational Cancer Research Center (of Cancer Care Ontario, a department of the Ontario Ministry of Health) and funded by the Canadian Cancer Society Research Institute (CCSRI) to estimate the number and proportion of new cancer cases and cancer deaths attributable to occupational exposure to carcinogenic agents, and to assess their current economic impact. Researchers from the Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST) and the Université de Montréal collaborated in this project, titled The Human and Economic Burden of Occupational Cancer in Canada.
The Montreal Symposium on Occupational Cancers took stock of the burden of occupational cancers in Québec and on current or potential prevention strategies.
