Annual report 2016 cover

Released every year in September, the Institute for Work & Health (IWH)’s Annual Report takes a look back at the previous fiscal year. The report includes a theme-based narrative on the fiscal year’s research and knowledge transfer and exchange activities, a look at the year in numbers, and the report of the independent auditors based on their annual review of the Institute’s financial statements.

The 2016 Annual Report focuses on the way in which IWH research is taken up directly by workplace parties. It tells the story of five workplaces that have used Institute research to better their occupational health and safety or return-to-work programming. It also describes other IWH research in 2016 that was designed to support workplace change.

Every year, the Institute for Work & Health puts together an Activity Plan detailing the research projects and knowledge transfer and exchange activities to be undertaken at the Institute in the coming year. For each project or activity, the plan outlines the rationale for undertaking it, its objectives, the researchers and partner organizations involved, its potential significance, and (if applicable) how it links to the prevention strategies of our core funder, the Ontario Ministry of Labour.

Current strategic plan

Strategic plan cover

The Institute for Work & Health (IWH) reviews its strategic direction about every five years and outlines this direction in a five-year strategic plan. The resulting IWH Strategic Plan is a high-level summary of the Institute’s vision, strategic directions and activities in the areas of research, knowledge transfer and exchange, research capacity, organizational excellence and sustainability.

Linked to the Strategic Plan is the Institute’s five-year Research Strategic Plan. It provides more detail on the strategic direction of IWH’s research over the coming years, and represents the Institute’s commitment to independent and impartial research aligned to the needs of policy-makers, employers and workers in Ontario and beyond.
