Did you know that the average working Canadian spends about 60% of their waking hours on the job? Did you also know that about one-third of all cancers can be prevented by eating well, being active and maintaining a healthy body weight? These 2 things combined show us that the workplace can become an ideal setting for improving overall health habits.
Since 2012, the Canadian Cancer Society has been working with employers across the province to provide resources to businesses to help build healthier workplaces for British Columbians. Working together, we have helped over 500 employers and thousands of employees feel empowered to eat better, move more and know more about their health while at work!
Our goal has always been to make wellness accessible to all, no matter the size of your business or the size of your budget, and with this new self-serve website, we feel closer to that goal than ever.
This website will guide you through the process of starting a wellness program or will help those with established programs by providing them with great information and resources.
As always, all this information is available to you for free, because everyone deserves to work in a healthy workplace!
