How to Achieve a Healthy Workplace for all Workers
The Ontario Workplace Health Coalition (OWHC) is an incorporated, not-for-profit body serving as a unifying structure across the province; helping to facilitate communication among workplace health stakeholders and promoting the importance of using a comprehensive approach to create healthy and safe workplaces in Ontario.
The OWHC’s vision is that all Ontario workplaces will recognize that employee mental, physical, and psychosocial health is fundamental to organizational success, and will therefore adopt and implement a comprehensive approach to a safe and healthy workplace as an integral part of their business strategy and operations.

All members, both organizational and individual, are welcomed to attend. See a full schedule below. *Lunch Provided*
Preceding our AGM will be two our two Keynote Speakers. Hear first-hand from Bonnie Harrow, the architect of Kailo--a wellness program that improves worker well-being while strengthening the bottom line, and John Yardley, a research consultant with expertise that runs the gamut from strategic to tactical, and experience extending from Board Rooms, to the C Suite, to the front-line.
Bonnie and John will reflect upon their combined nearly 80 years’ experience in researching, measuring, leading and supporting change efforts toward the creation of healthy work environments.
