Image for document cover.


An influenza pandemic is an exceptional situation that most Quebeckers have never had to deal with before. A pandemic will affect people both physically and psychosocially.

Many people—divided between their own needs, that of their significant others, and their work responsibilities—will find themselves in a delicate situation. Rapidly determining the people who will be particularly affected by the pandemic's psychosocial impacts will make it possible to initiate measures to help keep these people in their workplace.

This guide is for Québec employers and workers faced with an influenza pandemic. Its purpose is to provide information about the psychosocial effects of an influenza pandemic and about means for preserving the well-being of the target audience.
