On November 5, 2015, OCRC hosted a stakeholder meeting that focused on preliminary findings from the Burden of Occupational Cancer in Canada study. The meeting provided an overview of the study’s early results on asbestos, radon, and diesel engine exhaust, and discussed how these results can be used in prevention initiatives.
