IWH has a new address

After nearly 20 years at 481 University Avenue, the Institute for Work & Health (IWH) had to move out to make way for a 55-storey condominium. We did not go far. We’re still in the same Toronto neighbourhood, close to the Dundas Street and University Avenue intersection. As of August 2020, our new address is:

Institute for Work & Health
400 University Avenue, Suite 1800
Toronto, ON M5G 1S5

Our phone and fax numbers remain the same.
