Supporting employees and their immediate families is important to the GNWT.
The Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP) provides an avenue for support that respects an employee’s right to privacy.
More than just a counselling service for employees facing personal, family or work-related problems, GNWT employees can access EFAP for support related to:
- Fitness and physical health
- Mental health
- Nutrition and naturopathic medicine
- Elder care
- Legal advice
This voluntary orientation session is facilitated by a representative from the GNWT’s EFAP provider and is a great way to learn more about the program, its confidentiality, and how it can benefit you and your family. All employees are encouraged to attend.
