Employer Support Initiative

The goal of this initiative is to provide employers with tailored education, training and Enhanced Support Services as their employee returns to work after a concussion/brain injury. This is a FREE SERVICE!

The Employer Support Initiative provides:

  • An online training program tailored to employers (e.g. Executives/Supervisors/Managers/HR Representatives)
  • Access to Enhanced Support Services, which includes support from an Occupational Therapist and Social Worker
    • This portion of the initiative is a collaboration between you and your employee
    • To ensure appropriate consent is received, your employee must initiative these services by contacting the Return to Work team directly

Please note, this program is only available to employers in Ontario.
