What is ‘Well at Work’?

Despite the fact that stress and burnout are on the rise among staff in Canadian K-12 education systems, investment to support their well-being isn’t keeping pace.

BUILD awareness and a shared understanding of the urgent need to invest in staff mental health and well-being in ways that challenge mindsets and assumptions (e.g. “educators have it easy”)

AMPLIFY educators’ stories and lived experiences that get to the heart of what well-being actually means and looks like at work

SUPPORT school districts and provinces who are seeking solutions and making workplace well-being a top priority

We …

TRANSFORM groundbreaking research and evidence into personal and relatable stories that highlight the ups and downs of working in education

COLLABORATE with experts to demystify what the research says via fact sheets, infographics, podcasts, videos, and much more!

HOST national events to convene stakeholders around a common vision for workplace well-being in Canadian K-12 education
