Information and Procedure on Work Refusal

ONA’s member guide: My right to refuse unsafe work



From the Canadian Labour Congress

Canada has the worst record for COVID-19 deaths in long-term care homes compared with other wealthy countries, according to a recent report released by the Canadian Institute for Health Information.

69% of COVID-19 deaths in Canada were in long-term care.

This is a direct result of decades of cuts and increasing privatization. Private care homes focus on profit, not patients.

Long-term care needs to be part of the public health care system.

Canada votes on September 20, 2021. Ask your candidate to end privatized long-term care.

Call on your candidate to make LTC part of our public health care:


Recovery has to include a strong health care system that doesn’t leave anyone behind. Let’s vote for a better way.

Struggling with substance use and/or mental illness? You are not alone.

 A voluntary program designed to encourage nurses to seek treatment for substance use and/or mental health disorders that may affect their ability to practice safely.
