Promising Results of using the National Standard

Description: Now at its midpoint, the Mental Health Commission of Canada’s three-year Workplace Case Study Research Project provides some interesting early results of the over 40 organizations’ journey to implement the National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace.

This webinar will highlight early observations and promising practices, including how the journey differs depending on an organization’s size. Join us to hear from the research team and a participating organization on what it’s like for a Canadian employer to use the Standard.

Guest Speakers:

  • Merv Gilbert, Centre for Applied Research in Mental Health and Addiction (CARMHA), Faculty of Health Sciences, Simon Fraser University
  • Jen Gorman, Employee Benefits Coordinator-Marketing, Belmont Health & Wealth
