Asbestos exposure is Canada’s leading cause of workplace death, and only through strong national action can Canadians be protected.
Worldwide an estimated 107,000 people died from asbestos-related diseases each year. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified all forms of asbestos as carcinogenic to humans in 1987 and reaffirmed this classification in 2009.
