The Federated Health Charities Campaign is a workplace charitable campaign that allows members of the Ontario Public Service (OPS) to support up to 16 health charities through payroll deductions, donations and special events. 

On April 13, 2015 the Ministry of Energy held an event in support of the Schizophrenia Society of Ontario (SSO). Irina Sytcheva, SSO's manager of Policy and Community Relations spoke about programs and services while Christine Walter, a member of SSO's speakers bureau, talked about her experiences living with schizophrenia. 

OPS staff has donated over $40 million in 32 years, making this one of Canada's most successful worklpace campaigns and one that's become vital to its 16 member charaties.
