From 1943 to 1980, thousands of mine workers in Ontario were forced to breathe in an aluminum dust as a condition of employment. Mining companies hoped “McIntyre powder” would prevent silicosis. In 2015, Janice Martell, president of OPSEU Local 604, created the McIntyre Powder Project to seek answers on the long-term health effects of the aluminum dust program.

Intake clinics are being held for mine workers who were exposed to McIntyre powder or their survivors on May 11 and 12, 2016 from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. at the Ramada Inn ballroom on 1800 Riverside Drive in Timmins.

At the intake clinic, information will be gathered about the worker's health, work history, workplace exposures, and memories of their experiences with McIntyre powder in the mines.  The main goal is to better understand the types and incidence of health issues experienced by these workers and to investigate whether there may be a link between health problems and occupational aluminum dust exposure.
