Mental Health and the Workplace

– The measure of psychological and social well-being is broadly summed up in the concept of mental health. It captures how well we deal with the world around us, including our response to everyday challenges and moments of crisis. Given the inherently stressful and often conflictual nature of work, there are myriad ways in which grievance officers will interact with mental health issues.

Through presentations, plenary discussions, and small group sessions, the 2018 CAUT Forum for Senior Grievance Officers will explore mental health in the workplace, including core concepts, jurisprudence, and the support services available to academic staff. Please join us in Ottawa with colleagues from across Canada at this important event.

**New! Simultaneous interpretation (English/French) will be provided

Delegates are required to make their own hotel reservations directly with the Ottawa Marriott Hotel. It is imperative that reservations be made no later than the November 10 cut-off date. Hotel reservations can be made on-line by clicking on the image below or by contacting the Ottawa Marriott Hotel at 613-238-1122 or 1 888 236 2427 and mentioning the "Forum for Senior Grievance Officers" to obtain preferred rates starting at $163.00/night (Traditional guest room).


Airline reservations must be made directly with CAUT’s Travel Agent, W.E. Travel (888-676-7747). W.E.

CAUT will reimburse member associations for the cost of travel for one designated participant.  Reimbursable costs include travel by air, train, bus or automobile from the city of origin to Ottawa and return.  Transfers by cab or bus from home to the terminal, or from the terminal to the Workshop location, are not reimbursed. Associations are responsible for the cost of hotel accommodations and other expenses. Small associations – those with less than 200 members – are eligible for a subsidy. Please refer to the policy for full details.
