Lifeline Foundation

Lifeline provides confidential information, referral, and support services to union members and their families. Its purpose is to assist workers and their families to deal with difficult issues in their personal and working lives.

Lifeline is a union-based member assistance program. Lifeline was established by the Steelworkers' Toronto Area Council in 1974 as a charitable, not-for-profit organization so that the union, in collaboration with employers who hold collective agreements with the union, could provide a joint union-management employee assistance program for its members.

For more information about contacting Lifeline, please see your local union representative or unit chair, or call 416-977-6888.

Injured Workers Program

The Injured Workers Program of the Steelworkers' Toronto Area Council provides assistance to any member who has put in a claim to the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) regarding a workplace injury. The Program, funded by STAC locals, was born out of the necessity of providing our membership with the best experts in all areas of advocacy and proper representation in Appeals and Tribunals, and return-to-work meetings.
