Canadian workplaces are faced with the challenge of managing a workforce which is, due to health care restructuring, increasingly expected to provide unpaid caregiving to family members. This research program will examine how sex and gender is manifested in the interface between unpaid caregiving work and paid labour, recognizing that the role strain across these two entities causes ill-health for caregiver employees. In addition to building capacity for research on work and health that accounts for sex and gender, I will work with a range of knowledge users and non-academic collaborators to simultaneously foster the translation of that research into sex and gender sensitive policies and interventions that improve workers' health.
