Healthy Workplaces


Two in 5 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer this year alone and given that the average Canadian spends 60% of their waking hours on the job, the workplace becomes an ideal setting for healthy lifestyle education. This creates a mutually beneficial relationship between businesses looking to improve their bottom line and the health of their employees and the Canadian Cancer Society’s mission of eradicating cancers.

Healthy Workplaces provides direction and support for businesses looking to create healthier, more productive workplaces. We are pleased to offer a means to improve employee health and to reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases in the workplace. Our healthy work website includes online tools and information on healthy eating, physical activity, healthy minds, being tobacco-free, and sun and UV awareness in the workplace.
