2017 PTSD Summit
PreventionIn Action

Hosted by Ontario Minister of Labour Kevin Flynn

Message from the Minister

It is my pleasure to write to you today and provide you with a summary report of the Ministry of Labour’s second annual PTSD Summit. The summit was an informative and inspiring event and I appreciate your interest and engagement in this important issue.

The theme, “Prevention in Action,” kept our momentum going from previous summits as we continue to strive for innovation, effective implementation and ongoing improvement. There is still much we can learn from each other and this summit provided a great forum for discussion and sharing best practices. The attached report has captured many of the key points and best practices discussed at the summit, including advice from the day’s speakers.

This summit provided an opportunity to continue our efforts to prevent PTSD wherever possible and help ensure the necessary resources are in place for people who need them. I look forward to continuing the important work of addressing and preventing PTSD in the workplace.

Our government remains committed to preventing PTSD and working with our partners in order to protect the health and well-being of workers who regularly face, or are affected by, traumatic situations.


Kevin Flynn
Minister of Labour
