Recognizing our healthy and vibrant work environments
The Healthy Workplace Award was established to recognize the departments at Dalhousie University that promote and support employee health, engagement, and well-being.
Any Dalhousie-based work group is eligible, including university departments and programs located in other locations or organizations.
Submissions will be judged on their commitment and effort to instill some or all of the seven identified dimensions of wellness. Innovation, impact on the group members, and overall impact will also be a factor in the selection process.

Email your submission to HealthyDal@dal.ca by September 30, 2014. Submissions will be reviewed by Dalhousie’s Healthy Workplace Collaborative committee.

On Sunday, September 9th, a 2km stretch of roadway on the Halifax peninsula will be closed to vehicular traffic from 9am to 2pm and open to walkers, runners, bikers, in-line skaters, strollers, dancers, and much more. This event will be similar to the famous Ciclovia event held weekly in Bogota, which has been successfully duplicated the world over. Switch is aboutpromoting healthy and active living, in a fun and festive community-based atmosphere. This will be the first Switch in Halifax, with the hopes of making it a more regular event.
This is your official invitation to get involved and help make a difference in Halifax by volunteering for Switch! We are looking for volunteers to marshal the route (on wheels or on foot), provide information to event-goers, photographers, and first aiders. There are two volunteer shifts available on the day of the event: 8:30am-11:30am and 11:30am-2:30pm. This is a great way to enjoy the event, while ensuring the future success of Switch!
To sign up as a volunteer please fill out the form at the following link, preferably by August 31st. If you have already signed up – thank you!
