Sexual Harassment in the Hospitality, Gaming, and Airline Sectors in Canada

Resources section    

Have your say! Complete our survey.

This project examines workers’ experiences of sexual harassment and violence, focusing on three sectors: hospitality, gaming, and airline service.

  • What actions are taken to prevent and respond to sexual harassment and violence at work?
  • How can workers be supported?
  • What does the public need to know to do their part to prevent sexual harassment and violence?

We want to hear from everyone: workers, health and safety representatives, union representatives, and leaders.
The project is a collaboration between the Centre for Research & Education on Violence Against Women & Children at Western University and Unifor.
