Researchers from the University of Calgary and the University of Alberta have partnered with AAISA to conduct a study on occupational safety and work conditions for immigrant workers.

Participants should be:
- 18 years of age and older
- A recent immigrant employee (less than 10 years in Canada) OR a Canadian-born employee
- Working in an environment that is not safe for your health OR have sustained a work-related injury or illness
