Case Study Research Project

2014 – 2017

Funded by the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC), the purpose of the Case Study Research Project is to document how the National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace (the Standard) is being implemented in 42 participating organizations across Canada. The project is an iterative process evaluation of organizations, collecting qualitative and quantitative data to understand organizational approaches to implementation and identify promising tools and practices that can be used to contribute to knowledge and resources that will support the broader adoption of the Standard across Canada. 

The National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace (the Standard) was launched in 2013 by the MHCC. The Standard is a voluntary set of guidelines, tools and resources focused on promoting employees’ psychological health and preventing psychological harm at work.
