Resources

If you would like some more information on asbestos, here are a few resources that you can freely access.

If you believe that you may have been exposed, please consult your health care practitioner as soon as possible. To assist you with this, we have a letter that you can simply hand to your health care practitioner to explain why you are requesting an exam. You can download the generic Letter to a Health Care Practitioner in Word format.

If you believe you were exposed as a worker, contact your Province’s Ministry of Labour. In Ontario, you can also contact the Office of the Worker Adviser for assistance, your local MP/MPP or a local community legal clinic.
