A speaker talking about Mental Health.

Mental Health is Health

At Maple Leaf Foods, we have a desire to create a psychologically healthy and safe workplace for all our people, and support them through proven, effective means. It is our intention to develop a culture that stops the stigma associated with mental health problems, where people can be open and transparent, experience understanding and be provided with an array of resources and support.

As part of Mental Health Awareness initiatives at Maple Leaf Foods, we invited guest speaker Orlando Da Silva to share his own experience with depression. Orlando is a Senior Crown Counsel, a former Bencher of the Law Society of Ontario, the former President of the Ontario Bar Association and a Law Society Medalist.
