Men’s Health WeeK

WHY?

Canadians believe they’re a pretty healthy nation. But weirdly, Canadian guys aren’t that healthy. It’s not because of genetics; it’s a result of lifestyle.

In 2014 when the Canadian Men’s Health Foundation launched nationally in Canada we knew the statistics about the state of men’s health in Canada, and the picture those statistics painted was not too flattering for Canadian men.

Here’s a snapshot of some statistics: 

Canadian men are:

  • 57% more likely to die from diabetes
  • 79% more likely to die from heart disease
  • 29% more likely to be diagnosed with cancer and 40% more likely to die as a result
  • 54% more likely to die from kidney disorders
  • More than twice as likely to die from liver disease
  • 3 times more likely to commit suicide
  • 67% are overweight or obese

From these statistics we realized that the health of men on a personal, family and workplace level required a concerted effort of not one organization, but many pieces – from individuals, to other healthcare organizations, to private industry and government at all levels – to recognize the state of men’s health and its impact on Canadian society.

And that is why we have Canadian Men’s Health Week. To shine a light on men’s health. To work with other organizations and people, connecting the dots across Canada to improve the state of men’s and family health across our great nation.

History

The first Canadian Men’s Health Week took place in 2014 and followed in the foot steps of other men’s health weeks taking place around the world: Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Ireland, the United States, Denmark, Austria and the Netherlands.

Men’s Health Week is celebrated annually around the world during the week preceding and including Father’s Day. Men’s Health Week honours the importance of men’s health and wellness. Men’s Health Week was chosen for this specific time of year to make use of the extra attention paid to male family members near Father’s Day. Men’s Health Week is meant to educate the public about what can be done to improve the state of men’s health and provide health information to men and their families.
