Wellness Coaching


Ontario Graduate Certificate


Program Code: WC511

Campus: North

Length: 2 semesters starting in September

From managing chronic disease to quitting smoking or improving quality of life, Canadians have a range of health and wellness needs for which informed support can make all the difference. Whether you already work in the health-care field and are looking to add a new set of skills or are in search of a new career, employment opportunities for graduates of this program exist in a variety of settings such as:

  • cancer support programs
  • workplace health and wellness programs
  • cardiac rehab programs
  • chronic disease management programs
  • community health centres
  • family health-care teams
  • fitness and wellness centres
  • mental health support programs
  • self-employment

Throughout this program you will gain knowledge and skills for promoting health and wellness; initiating and supporting behaviour change; and preventing or managing disease. These skills will empower individuals and groups to take control of their health and wellness as they set and achieve healthy behaviour change goals. Experiential learning opportunities within Humber’s innovative Centre for Healthy Living and a work placement within a variety of organizational settings will allow you to put your learning into practice and gain relevant professional experience.

This program is not available to international applicants.

Work Placement

A core aspect of the program is a 225-hour work placement in which students secure a sponsor/mentor, determine a project, implement and evaluate the project, and practise and reflect on coaching relationships and processes. The site of the placement may be within a current employment setting or another appropriate worksite. Students are exposed to inter-professional learning, planning and leadership, coaching practice, collegiality, and collaboration. Online interactions and reflections occur with the instructor and class throughout the placement experience.
