Update to EFAP services
VCH staff, medical staff and their families can access counselling and individual wellness services by calling 1-833-533-1577 for all of their EFAP needs.

You can also access the LifeWorks digital platform, which offers personalized health and well-being content across a broad range of topics including mind, body, relationships, finances, and work.

VCH's internal Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP)
transitioned to an independent accredited external provider, LifeWorks, formerly Morneau Shepell.
LifeWorks is Canada's largest employee and family assistance (EFAP) provider, supporting employees and their families so they can manage work, health and life challenges. They offer a suite of in-person and virtual services, including 24/7 support for psychological health and safety concerns, e.g., wellness (health, financial, legal), critical incident stress management (CISM), and counselling services.

We are offering orientation sessions for staff who are interested in learning more about LifeWorks' services.
