Workplace Health

Workplace Health

Job satisfaction and productivity increase when employees are healthy. Healthy employees make for a healthy workplace.

Most Canadians spend a large part of their day at work. Therefore, an environment that supports healthy choices and work-life balance:

  • Improves productivity
  • Reduces absenteeism
  • Reduces workplace injuries
  • Improves workplace and employee morale;
  • Supports positive mental health and reduces stress.


  • Partner with workplaces to create policies, supportive environments and programs to support workplace health.
  • Provide resources and tools.

 What Matters to your health

Healthy workplaces are everyone's responsibility.

Workplace health promotion programs need to go beyond meeting basic health and safety regulations and focus on wellness through positive organizational culture, environmental supports and policies.
