June 6 to July 3, 2022

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Spring Into Wellness workplace challenge (over 71 individuals!).

Congratulations to the two winning teams:

  • Most Points Earned winner: WCTOA Team (Team members: Steph Beneteau, Kaye Johnson, Diane Luu-Hoang, Cherie Gagnon, Shelby Marchand)
  • Most Creative Team Name winner: Spring Forward Team (Team members: Jacqueline Stagner, Mitra Mirhassani, Hannah Sands, Giselle St. Louis)


Wellness is not just about healthy eating and physical activity; it is also about restful sleep, a sense of connection with others, the ability to cope effectively with life’s challenges, self-compassion, and much more!

From June 6 to July 3,  the Workplace Wellness committee invited all employees to participate in the Spring into Wellness 4-week workplace wellness team challenge. The challenge has been designed with the Workplace Wellness Wheel in mind and addresses 4 of the 7 dimensions of the Wheel: Social, Mental/Emotional, Physical, and Environmental Wellness. A Wellness Wheel is a tool that highlights interconnected dimensions of wellness that, when combined, can lead to a more balanced and meaningful life.

This challenge aimed to encourage employees to give a little more attention to the areas of wellness that may be neglected by suggesting specific simple and fun things to do each day.

  1. Form a team of up to 5 members
  2. Select a Team Captain and come up with a fun team name
