WSIB, Mohawk help injured workers resume their careers

May 18, 2018

Mohawk College and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board have partnered on the launch of a pilot program that will help injured workers amass work experience through job shadows and placements. The Hamilton Spectator reports that the partnership, funded by the provincial government’s Career Ready fund, will run through 2019. WSIB states that program aims to prepare injured workers for a successful transition back to work by building their resumes and employer networks. Mohawk students who are already part of WSIB's Return-to-Work Program will reportedly be included in the program. Hamilton Spectator
