About the Work and Climate Change Report

The Work and Climate Change Report (WCR) ended publication as of December 2021, coinciding with the wind-down of the research grant it supported. A searchable archive of issues from 2011 to December 2021 is available here and will be supported indefinitely by York University, Toronto, Canada.

The WCR monitored news and publications, sifting through the vast amount of climate change publications to identify and summarize those about the underserved topic of the workplace. The focus was on Canada, but also highlighted those international publications which had exceptional relevance to Canadians. Although some items from the mainstream media are represented, the majority of items highlighted are from the alternative press, labour unions, environmental advocacy groups and think tanks, and government.

WCR began as part of the Work in a Warming World (W3) Project based at York University, Toronto and continued as part of the Adapting Canadian Work and Workplaces to Respond to Climate Change (ACW) research project, also led by York University. Principal Investigator of both projects was Professor Carla  Lipsig-Mummé; Editor of the WCR was Elizabeth Perry.   An archive of the publications of the research grants is available here.
