Healthy U: June events on and off campus


The Healthy U team is happy to provide you with a list of events happening during the month of June both at Royal Roads and in the greater community. We hope that you enjoy a Saturday morning at a local farmers market, National Indigenous Peoples Day at Royal Roads, the Victoria International Jazz Fest or one of the other events happening.

Summer is a great time of the year filled with sunshine and later evenings, but it can also be an extremely busy and therefore stressful time of the year. If you’re looking for ways to de-stress, consider taking a class at the RRU Rec Centre, walking through our beautiful gardens or trying mindful meditation using the New York Times How to Meditate Guide. If you’d prefer to talk to a professional, our EFAP provider Walmsley provides 100% free and confidential counselling services for all staff and dependents. Our extended benefits plan includes 80% coverage up to $500 for Counselling Services from a registered therapist.
