Pilot project co-led by StFX receives $1M to support expansion into Atlantic Canada

A pilot project led in part by St Francis Xavier University Professor Dr Chris Gilham has received $1M to expand across Atlantic Canada. The school-based GuysWork program is focused on shifting young boys’ and men’s attitudes towards healthy masculinity. Gilham is the Evaluation Lead for the project, and StFX Professor Dr Derrick Lee will support the evaluation. “Our evaluation of GuysWork shows a shift in attitudes towards healthy masculinity that promises both the short and long-term health of boys and those around them, specifically their future partners,” said Gilham. “With this funding, we can expand the program throughout the Atlantic provinces and do a longer-term evaluation.” The project has received $525K from the Government of Canada and $525K from the Government of Nova Scotia.
