Past events

Our first Wellness Summit in 2019 focused on how we can empower organizations to create a culture of wellness, which enhances organizational performance. Together, we have the power to shift thinking from an individual level to a systems level. We want to trade traditional treatment approaches for successful prevention and holistic strategies, change outdated mindsets and support the adoption of evidence-based frameworks and guiding principles, which inspire unique approaches and positive outcomes on a global scale.

Explore fresh perspectives on workplace wellness

The health and wellness of employees has never been more important. While many workplaces have shifted to focus on their employees, people need connection now more than ever. True connection eliminates feelings of isolation and loneliness. These common stressors can lead to mental health issues.

Join us at the Alberta Blue Cross® Wellness Summit to explore how mental health can impact and shape wellness in the workplace. This virtual workplace wellness conference is tailored around inclusive culture and psychological safety. We’ll collaborate on how to maximize effective wellness programs and create a thriving organization.
