Mental health is now, more than ever, top of mind. 59% of working Canadians report experiencing a mental health issue, an increase from 52% in 2017, according to the 2019 Sun Life Barometer.
We’re committed to working together to create mentally healthy workplaces

Working together to help plan members

Our focus is on providing holistic support that addresses all elements of wellness. This includes building resilience in each Canadian, which promotes more sustainable outcomes for them and your business. Financial health has a real impact on mental health. Up to 40% of employees experience stress from personal finances, according to the 2019 Sun Life Canadian Health Index Survey. This can lead to lost productivity, absences and disability claims, impacting your organization. Together, we can help make a difference.

We have proactively engaged plan members online and with emails to increase awareness of the free support services, to help ease their financial stress and improve their mental health.
