Be Well, Work Well
Taking care of business, one at a time.
Rural communities and local businesses in Huron and Perth Counties have been uniquely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Gateway Centre of Excellence in Rural Health has partnered with the Ontario Government and other local partners to understand the impacts of COVID-19 on mental health and substance use in rural Huron and Perth workplaces.
The "Be Well, Work Well" study is driven by the voice of businesses in Huron and Perth counties, to develop strategies that optimize local assets, build resiliency to address business needs and improve the well-being of rural businesses and our local communities.
The "Be Well, Work Well" study will aim to strengthen Huron-Perth rural communities by ensuring that the voices of local employers and their employees are heard and reflected in the solutions. By joining communities together through roundtable discussions and focus groups, the project will support the resiliency of local rural businesses, employers, and employees into the future.
