Healthy Living is about living in ways that support, promote and enhance the well-being of individuals and their communities. An active lifestyle and healthy, nutritious eating are important factors in well-being. Take action now to promote and protect the health of your employees, your family and yourself!


Promoting healthy eating in the workplace can help to lessen workplace costs related to absenteeism, reduced productivity, increased insurance premiums, medical costs and prescription drug costs, as well as higher rates of injury, disability and early retirement1.

Physical activity

Physical activity plays an important role in the life of Canadians. Active people are more productive and more likely to avoid illness and injury2.
