Its membership currently includes York scholars with accomplished backgrounds in the arts and social sciences, community partners from workers’ organizations across Canada, and academic and non-academic researchers from the international labour research community. The Centre’s mandate is to promote collaborative research at York University that addresses the many issues that arise from the transformation of work in local, national, and transnational contexts, as well as to establish research linkages and partnerships in Canada and internationally.
