Whilst visiting a charity in Sweden in 2013, Gavin Bradley noticed all the staff had access to Sit-Stand work
stations – and what’s more thought nothing of it.
Puzzled by this, Gavin decided to investigate the background to why Sweden (and indeed Scandinavia)
are all Sit-Standing at work and he soon realised that there was some stark scientific research
which has resulted in legislation mandating workers to have a right to height adjustable desks.
Gavin soon decided that Canada needed to become aware of the multiple health risks of sitting and
compelling benefits of converting sitting time to standing time whilst at work.
So Get Canada Standing was born.
Our vision is that within 20 years more than 80 per cent of the workforce (four in five staff) will
convert between 2 – 4 hours of sitting time with standing daily at their desk.
