The objective of the North American Pooled Project is to assess the effects of exposure to specific pesticides and other agricultural factors in association with different cancer types.

Occupational exposure limits for carcinogens in Ontario workplaces: Opportunities to prevent and control exposure

Identifying opportunities for Ontario to improve its occupational exposure limits for carcinogens.

Analysis of the Ontario Ministry of Labour’s MESU exposure database

Significance: Analyzing past exposure data can give us important information on which occupations and industries were overexposed in the past and may continue to be overexposed in the future, where there are gaps in our knowledge, and where intervention efforts should be targeted. Moreover, exposures that occurred 15 to 40 years ago are highly relevant …

The Toronto lung cancer case-control study and SYNERGY project

The goal of this project is to examine associations between multiple occupational exposures and smoking within a Toronto-based lung cancer case-control study, and to contribute data to an international pooled case-control study.

Wood dust and sinonasal cancer in Canada

This study investigates occupational exposure to wood dust and the rate of sinonasal cancers in Ontario and across Canada.

Exposures to emerging environmental contaminants and risk of breast cancer in young women: A case-control study using biomarkers of exposure

This study will evaluate the associations between polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) exposure and the risk of breast cancer in young women.

Shiftwork in Canadian industries: A probable cancer risk factor

Our goal is to raise awareness of shiftwork as a probable cancer risk factor, and identify practical interventions that can be used in workplaces to reduce the negative health effects of shiftwork.

Occupational cancer surveillance using the 1991-2006 Canadian census mortality & cancer cohort

The goal of this project is to identify occupations, industries, or exposures that lead to an increased risk of cancer, by using a database containing information from the 1991 long form census linked to the Canadian Cancer Registry data.

The human and economic burden of occupational cancer in Canada

This study will estimate the number of cancers and cancer deaths occurring in Canada due to occupational exposure to carcinogens, and the economic costs of these cancers.

Cross-Canada study of pesticides and select cancers: New analyses
