What is Minerva Canada Safety Management Education Inc.?

A non-profit volunteer-run organization, Minerva Canada, aims to be a global leader in health and safety management education by influencing the curriculum of post-secondary institutions to ensure that future business leaders create healthier and safer workplaces.
The only organization of its kind, it:
  • advocates for increased inclusion of health and safety concepts in business and engineering curricula
  • educates the educators by providing business and engineering professors and instructors in universities and colleges with practical, curriculum-ready tools and initiatives
  • forges partnerships with governments, associations and accreditation boards
  • connects educators with Canada’s business enterprises to learn what industry seeks from new graduates entering the workforce and how health and safety management concepts are being applied in the workplace.
Several of Minerva’s resources and activities are provided free of charge to educators, financially supported by our roster of blue-chip corporate, organizational and government sponsors.
