Essential Service Employer Award

The Award
This award recognizes and honours the meaningful contributions of employers who went above and beyond to support the mental health needs of their employees while remaining open as an essential service during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

This can be interpreted broadly to include any act that improves individual or collective mental health and/or spirit.

Examples of an Essential Service Employer may include first responders, grocery store operators, pharmacy, public transit, warehouses, delivery and courier services, shipping companies or any business/organization deemed essential by their respective provincial government or local public health unit.

All recipients will be celebrated at our Pandemic Heroes – Standing Up for Mental Health Gala on Thursday, December 2, 2021 at the OMNI King Edward Hotel in Toronto, Ont.
