Abstract

All across the world a wide range of people move for work - women and men, citizens and temporary foreign workers, new workers and those near retirement. From hours-long daily commutes, to travel that takes workers away from home for days, weeks, months and even years; from cars and buses, to trains, ships and planes; from highly-paid top executive jobs, to minimum-wage service jobs; from natural resource dependent industry to natural wonder dependent tourism - the spectrum of employment-related geographical mobility (E-RGM) is dynamic and broad. The On the Move Partnership is a 7-year national scale research study with international links, which will look comparatively at the spectrum of employment-related geographical mobility and its consequences for workers, families, employers, communities, and Canadian municipal, provincial and federal governments. The project was officially launched in December 2012.
