Health Professionals Talking

Precarious Employment Research Initiative (PERI)

Goal of this working group

To identify how employment and working conditions are impacting the economic, social, physical and mental health of workers and their communities in the Peterborough Area.

The products created from this research are meant to be used to start conversations in our community, to help inform planning and development of programs and services, and to help shape public policies. The products include:

  • 8 InfoBriefs that give an overview of the research findings
  • Interactive Tableau to display research findings
  • Details from the 2018 PERI Conference: What is the Cost of Precarity
