New Workplace Wellbeing and Benefits Website

New Workplace Wellbeing and Benefits Website


Today, we have launched our new Workplace Wellbeing & Benefits site.

To reflect the new approach to health and wellbeing at UBC, we have built a new and improved site for faculty and staff to access details about their UBC benefits, and ways to be healthy at work and in your personal lives.

New Site Features


This section consolidates the previous benefits section of the HR website, and includes details for the active and retiree plans, as well as how to get started, and how to make a claim.

Life Events

With our Life Events section, we focus on providing information on common life events that might necessitate changes in your benefits.

Workplace Health

This section brings together information on services provided by the University to employees for health in the workplace.

Living Well

This section has information for individuals who are interested in learning more about their personal physical, mental and nutritional health.

Events and Workshops

This page contains information about our upcoming health and wellbeing events.

A-Z listing

For years, we’ve heard from our audience that a lot of UBC’s terminology can be confusing for those who are new or who do not interact with the services frequently. We have created this A-Z listing page to help you find information based on what you’re looking for.


We invite you to look at the new site, and if you have any feedback, please let us know in our feedback survey.
