Public Meeting Report Back (Nov 12)
November 14, 2011 - 1:00pm EST
Approximately 120 retirees, former employees and family members of Canadian Fabricated Products/Johnson Controls attended a public meeting on Saturday November 12, 2011 at the Royal Canadian Legion in Stratford.

The purpose of the meeting was to provide an update on the investigations that have taken place since a public meeting that was held in January 2009

As of yet, the investigations have not established clear cut evidence of a relationship between workplace exposures and the various diseases and illnesses that former employees are experiencing, this could change if more workers report illnesses that can be associated with work at their former CanFab Workplace. In the meantime, there remains concern about the possible relation of workplace exposures to illnesses such as breast cancer and benign brain tumours.

Workers who have concerns about illnesses they believe may have been caused by their work at the former CanFab are encouraged to come forward by contacting the Occupational Health Clinic for Ontario Workers (Hamilton Clinic) OHCOW.

OHCOW Hamilton will continue to monitor the developments if, and when, more former employees report illnesses. The Office of the Worker Adviser (OWA) remains available to advise anyone who has a claim.
