How we’re working to improve physical, mental
and social health in Canada
Purolator Health is designed to empower our employees and their families with accessible, inclusive and diverse resources to support their physical, mental and social wellbeing. We’ve collaboratively created a foundation of resources to support employees and their families, communities and customers. We have adopted principles and best practices from the National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace. Behind every resource and initiative is a commitment to continuously improving the ways in which we help Canadians take charge of their overall health.
Mental health in the workplace
We’re making sure our workplace culture fosters a positive attitude towards mental health, which includes being supportive of employees’ overall wellbeing and improving awareness to access support.
Focus on safety
Our collective efforts to continually improve the psychological and physical safety of our workplace will transcend to our customers and communities.
Readily available support
We are continually improving access to resources for our employees and their families, by increasing knowledge of tools and access to health experts.
Purolator Tackle Hunger®
Since 2003, Purolator employees have been going the extra mile to take action through Purolator Tackle Hunger®, an initiative that’s all about people helping people. During the past 20 years, the Purolator Tackle Hunger program has delivered more than 20 million pounds of food to food banks to help Canadians across the country.
One in five Canadian households experience food insecurity. We can’t tackle hunger alone.
We’re committed to helping Canada meet its target of net-zero emissions by 2050. To achieve this, we make continuous investments in reducing our environmental impact. Our efforts include improving our energy efficiency, reducing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and eliminating waste.

Mental Health Commission of Canada
We offer workplace mental health-focused training through a two-day, in-class program. There, Purolator employees can become certified by the Mental Health Commission of Canada in mental health first aid, or earn their The Working Mind Manager certificate. This is a crucial part of our commitment to developing and sustaining a psychologically safe workplace.
Chief Medical Director
Our Chief Medical Director is the first in our industry. Dr. Shaan Chugh leads the Cleveland Clinic Canada team to collaboratively support employees with exceptional physical and mental health initiatives. We’ve also rolled out new programs including virtual chats with medical and subject matter experts and sustainability programs to bolster our mental health training.
