The three-part series is supported by McMaster University and the Centre of Excellence on PTSD,with additional funding coming from the Mobilizing Insights in Defence and Security (MINDS) program.
The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) also developed three online courses to help employers, managers, and employees in federally regulated workplaces understand their specific roles and responsibilities in preventing harassment and violence in the workplace.
New regulations around workplace harassment and violence, and employment equity took in effect for federally regulated workplaces at the start of the year. Yet, Canada’s military has faced issues of workplace violence this year.
