Collecting and Using Data for Collaborative and Equitable Change: Introduction (Wathen & Lizotte)

Video: A Study of Coroner’s Files of Migrant Agricultural Workers’ Deaths in Ontario

“Our research team, consisting of medical doctors, nurses, and academics with decades of experience regarding the health and human rights of migrant agricultural workers in Canada, several of whom participated in a death review carried out by the Deputy Coroner of Ontario in 2020-21, conducted a research study to identify (a) common and divergent medical issues and trajectories, as well as (b) social determinants and resources available to migrant agricultural workers that may help explain the context, and/or may have contributed to the deaths of these nine individuals during the 2020 and 2021 seasons.”
