CLC Violence and Harassment Survey

 In News

The CLC is excited to announce a new national survey on workplace violence and harassment.

The survey, which is being conducted with researchers at Western University and the University of Toronto, is the first ever survey on violence and sexual harassment in the workplace with a national reach in Canada.
It will launch online on October 21.
We need all workers to fill it out—workers of every gender, whether or not they have experienced or witnessed workplace violence or harassment. This is how we will get a clearer picture of workers’ experiences in workplaces across the country.
Like with the groundbreaking Domestic Violence at Work project, the results of this research will inform policy and education initiatives on workplace violence and sexual harassment.
We are counting on all affiliates, federations and labour councils to help spread the word, and encourage your members to participate. Below, you will find links to the following downloadable files:
1) Template emails for locals and members
2) Social media shareables
We will continue to develop promotional tools throughout the 6-month survey period.
The survey is open to workers 18 years of age or older. It takes approximately 10 to 30 minutes to complete. All respondents will remain anonymous.
The survey will be online here. Please share it with your members on all the platforms you use to communicate with them.
For any questions, please contact our Human Rights Department at
In solidarity,
