Statistical Profile of Occupational Injuries among Immigrants to Quebec, 2012–2016


This activity is intended to develop a statistical profile of occupational injuries among immigrants. The researchers will identify the groups of immigrant workers (professions, occupational categories, industries, sociodemographic characteristics) that are most at risk of suffering an occupational injury and the characteristics and consequences of these injuries.

The results will be used to better guide preventive and research activities for this population, which is increasingly represented in Quebec’s employment market.
