Financial Health

Supporting our Employees' Financial Wellbeing

Our financial health is closely linked to our mental health and recent research shows that many Canadians feel insecure about their current financial situation. Gaps in financial  wellness can relate to both day-to-day money management as well as understanding how saving more today can help ensure financial security during retirement. Many people do not have the knowledge, skills or confidence to handle their finances or manage unexpected changes to their financial situations. This can lead to stress and affect their overall mental and physical well-being.

Purolator Health aims to help our employees improve their financial well-being and reduce the negative impacts of financial stress.

Understanding your Finances

Financial Education:
Purolator Health offers monthly workshops to develop financial literacy. Financial literacy is a successful approach to building resiliency and helps to alleviate stress.

Wellness Wednesdays are offered virtually and are accessible to all employees and family members to access live or view a recording at their preferred time. These workshops are facilitated by the Credit Counselling Society, non-profit organization offering education and confidential credit counselling.

In addition to monthly education, each November we recognize Financial Literacy Month – About Financial Literacy Month – We partner with our Pension and Benefits team to share information, articles and tools related to Financial Literacy.
