Our incentive-based Wellness Program, now in its fifteenth year, continued to support our Social Policy by promoting health and wellness through fitness classes, mental health courses, lunch-and-learn sessions, career development training and community involvement. Our employees continued to engage, with 90 per cent participating in the program through various events and functions. We emphasized all aspects of wellness, including mental health, into workplace initiatives and will continue to build on this momentum in 2017. We provided financial incentives through a detailed system of points that awards people up to $210 per year as gift cards in pursuit of their health and social goals. And we provided two permanent accommodations and 12 temporary accommodations for employees and conducted five formal employee health and safety investigations.
