Our HealthPartners@Work program has been designed to capture the attention of employees in the workplace and give them an intimate and interactive opportunity to learn about living with chronic disease. The program is an introduction to 16 of Canada’s most trusted national health charities and the chronic diseases they represent that will most likely affect 87% of Canadians.

The display allows visitors to “walk a mile” in the shoes of those suffering from diseases such as Cystic Fibrosis, lung disease, arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis and others. It demonstrates through active involvement what people living with chronic disease experience day to day delivering a greater understanding of what it is like to have trouble breathing, to have reduced mobility, or lack of muscle control. We all know someone who suffers from diseases like heart disease and stroke, cancer, and Alzheimer’s. HealthPartners@Work provides information on how, through workplace giving, HealthPartners/PartenaireSanté enables our partner charities to provide programs, services, education and fund critical research to support those affected Canadians and their families.

During the GCWCC, HealthPartners@Work booths are offered to Government of Canada employees at their workplace and are available to departments/agencies upon request.

To book your HealthPartners@Work booth, contact your local GCWCC Manager who will arrange the HealthPartners@Work booth with your provincial HealthPartners coordinator, or email Reservations for the fall start in May. Reservation dates are honoured on a first-come, first-served basis.
