Canadian Mental Health Luncheon learns the importance of balancing work and family from Dr. Judith Martin.


Do you work in a "family friendly" workplace? More and more Canadian employers are working to make their workplaces healthier.

Dr. Judith Martin is leading the charge as Executive Director of the Work and Family Unit in the Provincial Government's Department of Labour. "We need new attitudes and new public policy. No where in Canada does any employee have the right to stay home and care for a sick child and not lose wages. No where in this great country."

Dr. Martin says the "lack of work and family life balance" is now recognized as a major economic and social issue in Canada. She was the guest speaker at yesterday's Canadian Mental Health Association luncheon in Moose Jaw.
