Our Commitment

Consistent with the top priority of Principal Emerita Fortier’s that McGill become a Learning Organization, we are focusing on becoming a Healthy Workplace as per the nationally recognized standards of Excellence Canada (Silver Certification). 

Under the sponsorship of VP Administration & Finance, Yves Beauchamp, we are committed to a rigorous process of self-assessment, the development of a Healthy Workplace Plan to bridge gaps and raise awareness, and a subsequent external assessment by Excellence Canada of McGill’s Healthy Workplace plans, processes and future state.  

Through this Healthy Workplace initiative, McGill aims to create optimal conditions for us to become that agile community of engaged learners who co-create, innovate and strive for excellence. We aim to:


1. Ensure that our workplace is healthy

considering how we lead, how we plan, the programs we provide, how we truly engage our people – both new and seasoned - and how we manage change including processes and risk

2. Measure ourselves concretely

systematically bridging gaps between where we are and where we want to be as a healthy, learning centric workplace

3. Root continuous learning into our culture, programs and practices

making My Healthy Workplace contributions sustainable and transformational
