Support Healthy Workplace Initiatives at UBC
The Healthy Workplace Initiatives Program fund is available to UBC departments, units and operational committees to support healthy workplace initiatives and share examples of good practice.
The fund is part of the Focus on People Framework strategy “to develop a sustainable, healthy workplace.”
This competition typically funds applications less than $5,000. Applications in excess of this amount are considered if highly adherent to the criteria. Review previous recipients.
Please also take note of our service provider criteria, new as of Spring 2013.
Individualized coaching is available for departments/units interested in applying for funding. Please contact Miranda Massie, Health Promotions Coordinator (email@example.com or 604.822.8762) to book a meeting.
Or, speak to one of our mentors (past applicants that have volunteered) for tips on the application process.
