Direct Access to DATABASE


The Work in a Warming World  Bibliographic Database is a free, fully searchable database of French and English-language documents related to climate change and its impact in the Canadian workplace. It includes overviews, selected international studies, and the following Canadian sectors: automobile manufacturing, construction, forestry, postal services, tourism, and energy.

Topics include:                                                                        

The green economy; how to define and measure green jobs; labour skills and shortages; training; job creation; job displacement as industries move to green jobs; job quality; public policy.

The database covers documents that were published from 1995 to the present.

How to Use:

  • Use a basic search or the advanced search menu item to find documents by author, publishing body, keyword, or descriptor. The database is also organized into folders by the sectors covered. Most of the approximately 1500 items have a link to a website where the document was found, as well as a short abstract.
  • You can select items that interest you and create a bibliography.
  • The database has a help function, but if you have questions about how to use it, or how to find any of the documents, please email
