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.

With the assistance of members and healthy workplace stakeholders, the Coalition has prepared a Healthy Workplace Handbook intended for use in all Ontario workplaces. It was developed to assist Ontario organizations in initiating and sustaining their own healthy workplace programs. As well,the Coalition has developed a Proposal for an Ontario Comprehensive Workplace Health Strategy. The Proposal supports the development of a strategy for comprehensive workplace health (CWH) at the provincial level and aims to establish a common guideline by which Ontario organizations can integrate CWH into their core business plans.

Our Vision

All Ontario workplaces will:

  • Value employee mental, physical, and psychosocial health as fundamental to organizational success; and
  • Adopt and implement a comprehensive approach to healthy workplace as an integral part of their business strategy and operations.

Our Mission

The mission of the Ontario Workplace Health Coalition is to:

  • Bring together, educate and support all workplace stakeholders who are working toward creating mentally, physically and psychologically healthy workplaces.
