Investment Executive - - ADVISORS’ REPORT CARD -

• Each week, at least 500,000 em­ployed Cana­di­ans are un­able to work due to men­tal health prob­lems. This in­cludes ap­prox­i­mately 355,000 dis­abil­ity cases and 175,000 full-time workers ab­sent from work due to a men­tal ill­ness. • The cost of a dis­abil­ity leave for a men­tal ill­ness is about dou­ble the cost of a leave for a phys­i­cal ill­ness.
