Helping Canadian employees optimize their health and wellness

We help millions of people stay at their best

Homewood takes care of people. We provide service to well over 6,000 organizations and two million employees and their families. Whether that's by providing comprehensive employee, family, and member assistance programs, innovative and accessible work-life services, timely critical incident response or providing effective workplace support, we are there whenever we are needed.

The Homewood Difference

Our EFAP and Crisis Management programs and interventions are designed to provide short-term, solution focused support in dealing with the precursors of more complex mental health and addiction issues. We aim to prevent smaller problems from becoming larger, costlier and more complex.

Stay at Work

In any given week, at least 500,000 employed Canadians are unable to work due to mental health problems, and Canadian businesses bear the weight of this escalating cost. As Canada’s leader in delivering mental health and addiction services, Homewood proactively supports organizations, employees and their families as they face challenges to their productive presence at work. Our objective is to help them take responsibility for their optimal mental and physical health by providing evidence-based and solution-focused services. Additionally, we offer targeted counselling solutions that support early intervention and disability prevention.

Wellness & Prevention Services

Programs that help employees and organizations achieve optimal health. We offer tailored resources and targeted programs that enhance the healthy and productive functioning of your organization.

Employee & Family Assistance Programs

When your employees need help, we are there with counselling and resources in person, by phone, or online. Our counsellors can help manage everything from grief and anger to stress and relationships.

Crisis Management Services

Our Crisis Management Services involve a multi-faceted approach to crisis intervention—designed to offer support and psychological and emotional first aid to employees and organizations after a critical incident.

Disability Prevention Services

Focused on resolving a mental health challenge before it results in time away from work—we personalize and scale our support to match employee needs and overcome specific obstacles to health and wellness.

We help keep your employees where you need them…at work.

Our Stay at Work services are designed to help employees deal with issues that challenge their ability to be productive at work. Whether it’s counselling, substance abuse assessments, early intervention services for depression and trauma, or work-life services, Homewood’s programs are evidence based, delivered using best-practice approaches, and enable employees to access the services in a timely, convenient way.
