New project focused on empowering trucking and logistics employers in addressing mental health in the workplace

OTTAWA, ON (March 19, 2018) – Trucking HR Canada, with support from the Ontario provincial government, today announced a new project focused on mental health in the trucking and logistics industry.

Spanning two years, the new initiative will work to increase understanding among trucking and logistics employers on the importance of psychological health in the workplace; and, develop practical and relevant resources and tools to support employers in addressing employee mental health.

“Mental health in the workplace is an important, emerging priority among trucking and logistics employers.” Says Angela Splinter, CEO of Trucking HR Canada.  “This project enables us to focus on the development of tools tailored to the needs of trucking and logistics’ employers in supporting workers dealing with mental health issues.”

In any given week, 500,000 employed Canadians are unable to work due to a mental health issue, and the cost of a disability leave is about twice the cost of a leave due to physical illness. And a U.S. study showed that truck drivers are more prone to depression and anxiety than other occupations due to the time alone and away from home.  At a time when driver recruitment and retention is top of mind for many employers, these practical supports can assist employers with better managing their driver workforce.

Carleton University Accessible Experiential Learning Project (CUAEL) Description

What is Experiential Learning

The Carleton University Accessible Experiential Learning (CUAEL) project is a new experiential learning project funded by the Ontario Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development (MAESD). Working collaboratively with the Paul Menton Centre for Students with Disabilities and the Career Services Office, the CUAEL project aims to place 300 students with disabilities in employment opportunities and provide them with hands-on quality experiences while they obtain their post-secondary degree at Carleton University.

At Carleton, students with disabilities are now graduating at a rate on par with the general population. Carleton is well-placed to implement the CUAEL model program in employment preparation, with the objective of moving the employment success rate of students with disabilities towards par with the general population.

The CUAEL project will allow Carleton to build capacity with its employer partners, demonstrating the potential of students with disabilities and creating ongoing employer relationships that will continue after the Career Ready Fund period is complete.

The CUAEL Project Objectives and Scope (2018-2019)

We believe that by fostering meaningful connections and greater awareness of the benefits of hiring students with disabilities, these CUAEL goals will be met with great success!

CUAEL Funded Employment Placement Periods

In addition to the above, co-op and internship opportunities can be explored for your company’s involvement throughout the year.

Contact us now to get involved in this groundbreaking project and become an employer champion, by discovering and investing in the vast potential of our students!
