What is an EFAP?

An EFAP is a strictly confidential and voluntary support service for you and your immediate family members – not even your employer will know you’ve used the service. An EFAP offers solutions to all kinds of challenges at any age and stage of life. Whether you need help with health, work, relationships, family, finances, or legal matters, Shepell·fgi EFAP is your ticket to balancing work, health and life.

An EFAP is a complimentary service provided by your employer’s benefits plan. You can receive short-term professional support in-person, over the telephone, through text-based learning or online via e-counselling, instant online chat or video counselling and self-paced programs. If you need more specialized or long-term support, your EFAP offers you the right care for your individual needs. Check with your employer to see if you qualify for Shepell·fgi’s award-winning EFAP.
