Precarity Canada is a series of events taking place in Toronto and Montreal to document and raise awareness about the notion of precarity not as a “…simple reinvocation of dichotomies but a tendency towards the precarization of life that threatens every aspect of social existence”(Turpin and Renzi, 2007).
