Healthy Workplace Month


It all begins with you.

Happiness is a healthy workplace. Fostering a healthy workplace is the responsibility of both employers and employees.

The goals of Canada's Healthy Workplace Month® (CHWM) are to
  1. Increase awareness of the need for a comprehensive approach to workplace health in Canada that is influenced by the four elements of a healthy workplace:

    • Healthy Lifestyles
    • Workplace Culture and Mental Health
    • Physical Environment
    • Corporate Social Responsibility

  2. Provide healthy workplace tools, resources and best practice examples to help organizations create healthy workplaces with benefits for employees and themselves

  3. Increase the number of healthy workplaces in Canada
