A safer space is a place that strives to eliminate discrimination against people experiencing all forms of oppression, such as homophobia, transphobia, racism, sexism, ableism and classism. This is partially achieved by using inclusive language. The Wellness Education and Promotion Centre is a safer space as we abide by these principles and strive to constantly use inclusive language.

Wellness can mean a lot of things to different people, but for us it is a multi-dimensional approach to living a healthy and balanced life by recognizing and understanding the influences on our well-being. We recognize seven dimensions of wellness including emotional, environmental, intellectual, occupational, physical, social and spiritual wellness. We invite you to learn what your sense of personal wellness means to you.
