Pregnancies, unconscious bias, market instabilities, a global pandemic – there are countless events, life experiences, and external forces leaving working Canadian women feeling stressed, anxious, and burned out. In fact, more than one-third of short-term disability claims are related to mental health, and that number continues to rise.

This white paper examines working women’s experiences with mental health and current workplace wellbeing efforts alongside key findings from our 2023 Building on Optimism: The Future of Canadian Women in the Workplace study. 

In this paper, you will learn: 

  1. The barriers working women face with actionable solutions employers can take to help shift the dialogue
  2. How to destigmatize mental health for women
  3. How to support women’s wellness journeys now and in the future.
