Public Health for Vulnerable Populations 635 PHVP 635
Public Health and Labour Market Disadvantage 1.5 (0-1-0-0)

Employment and working conditions are important determinants of health, providing individuals an income as well as a sense of identity, belonging and structure in their day-to-day lives. Canadians who are disadvantaged in the labour market are a vulnerable population. This includes individuals who are frequently unemployed, underemployed, or employed in unhealthy or insecure work environments. This course will use a multilevel perspective to '1' examine the impacts of labour market disadvantage on health; '2' introduce students to pathways that may explain these impacts; and '3' identify actions to reduce labour market disadvantage and its health impacts on Canadians.
