Dear Brothers and Sisters, On April 28th, please join with us in remembering our brothers and sisters who have been killed, injured or suffered illness as a result of work-related incidents. We also honour the families and friends who have been deeply affected by these tragedies. In addition to remembrance we must all take this opportunity to renew our commitment to health and safety. National Day of Mourning
An important contributor to recovery, peer support is a supportive relationship between people who have a lived experience in common. The peer support worker provides emotional and social support to others who share a common experience. But despite evidence of the benefits, for both individuals and families, peer support programs have yet to receive the focus, funding, and attention needed.
Peer support programs work by offering people support, encouragement, and hope that recovery is possible. Peer support considers the wellness of the whole person and focuses on health and recovery rather than illness and disability, in order to assist people in finding their own path to recovery. There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to peer support. It can take many different forms and be offered wherever people need it, whether in peer-run organizations, workplaces, schools, or healthcare settings.
We hope you visit our Peer support page and if someone is there to help please reach out and have a conversation. It doesn’t have to be someone we work with. It can be friends, family, co-worker or support provided through the company. All it takes is one call or email, just reach out. Help is only a phone call away. Please know that we are not the only ones who may need someone to talk to. Our friends and family may need someone to be there.
March 31st becomes a big day and one to remember for John. The last trip home from Montreal, only to ever return for leisure not for business. You’ve worked hard to get where you are in life John and you have finally made it to retirement. 7 day weekends!!
On March 29th, we see the final trip with Dave Sim. Your retirement actually means that you got promoted to one of the best roles in your life. Congratulations Dave.
Its March 29th 2018 and retirement marks the end of working for someone else and the beginning of living for yourself, Congratulations Rick.
