YOU HAVE RIGHTS!
We are here to help you enforce them …
The CTTAE is a community organization from the collective rights defense sector in Eastern Township
The CTTAE (Injured worker’s committee) is a community organization from the collective rights defense sector, created BY and FOR victims of a work accident or a professional illness who experience difficulties in processing their claim with CNESST (Quebec’s health commission) or their employer.
Our service approach is based on empowering injured workers to retake control over their situation and to better understand Quebec’s Working Health and Safety system. We help our members and the general public to better understand their rights, responsibilities and each step to be taken with their employer and Quebec’s health commission (CNESST) for the treatment of their claim.
By phone, email, mail or in person at our offices, we educate the public and workers on all aspects of Occupational Health and Safety.
From September to June, through several activities every month, the CTTAE coaches and informs its members and citizens on various issues and topics related to health and safety at work and CNESST’s claim procedures. All activities are free and open to the public.
For injured workers who are wondering or experiencing difficulties, we support them in their efforts: We explain, facilitate and support victims throughout the process in order to equip them to defend their case, regain control and resolve their problematic situation.
To raise awareness among the Eastern Townships population about health and safety major issues at work, the CTTAE organizes or invites its members and the general public to recurrent events to mark several international days:
APRIL 28th – Day of Mourning, Tribute to Fallen Workers;
MAY 01st - Workers' Day;
OCTOBER 07th - World Day for Decent Work;
DECEMBER 10th- International Human Rights Day.
CTTAE is an advocacy organization and we make it our duty to make known the demands and concerns of injured workers to elected officials and public and private bodies. However, since our interveners are law students and therefore not recognized by the Barreau du Québec, it is impossible for them to act as legal representatives before the court.
