BC Healthy Communities is a province-wide not-for-profit organization that facilitates the ongoing development of healthy, thriving and resilient communities. We provide a range of resources, programs, funding and fee-for-service offerings that support multi-sectoral groups to collaborate around a shared vision for a common purpose.
We offer a range of services that reflect our?interdisciplinary team’s?expertise in planning, public health, and community engagement. Our service model is not linear – rather, it reflects the continuous process of improving and strengthening community health and well-being through policy and programs.
PlanH supports lol governments creating healthier communities through funding, resources, learning opportunities and leading practices for healthy public policy.
The BC Age-friendly Communities Program provides funding, resources and pacity-building supports to help Indigenous and lol governments, as well as other partners, build communities where older adults are supported to age-in-place, living active, socially engaged, independent lives.
The goal of the pilot is to support more students to walk, bike and scoot to and from school.The pilot will test adapted materials from existing evidence-based Active School Travel Programs in a small cohort of B.C. school communities.
