Healthy Department Certification

The Healthy Department Certification was launched in Fall 2018 and designed to highlight those departments that are making strides toward practicing and promoting health and well-being in the workplace.

The application focuses on nine areas of well-being and aims to start a conversation on where your department is doing well as well as highlight areas that have room for improvement. 

  • Physical Activity
  • Department Culture
  • Stress Management
  • Managers and Supervisors and Emotional Health
  • Communications and Promotions
  • Ergonomics
  • Physical Environment
  • Safety
  • Food Environment


The 2019-20 Healthy Department Certification is now closed.

Our next application period will be August 3, 2020 - October 16th 2020. It is recommended that you complete the application with at least one other colleague or a wellness committee in your department to ensure that all viewpoints and interpretations of the questions are considered.
