The annual research priorities are informed by WorkSafeBC’s five-year strategic plan to ensure alignment with the strategic goals of the organization. Each year, Research Services consults with internal and external stakeholders to identify key research priorities to serve both current and emerging issues.
Research Services invites proposals aligned with the topics listed in the table below.
While the merits of all proposals will be considered, preference will be given to proposals that incorporate the following:
- Sex and gender considerations into research questions and study design. For integrating sex and gender considerations, refer to the information on the CIHR website.
- Address the needs and challenges of vulnerable populations including Indigenous workers; aging workers; young workers; transient or migrant workers, immigrant or new workers; small businesses.
