We look a little different.
Over the past year, we’ve been working to create a new logo and brand that better encapsulates who we are and what we do.
We’re now ready to share that vision with you as we build our capacity to support local governments across the province striving to develop healthy communities.
We’ll be rolling out our new website and brand over the next few months. For now, you can access the current site for resources, information, and community stories.
Coming here from UBCM? Head over to our Get Started page to access the resources listed in our booklet.
BC Healthy Communities Society (BCHC) is a province-wide not-for-profit that facilitates the ongoing development of healthy, thriving and resilient communities. We provide a range of resources, programs and fee-for-service offerings that support multi-sectoral groups to collaborate around a shared vision for a common purpose. We work closely with, and have strong partnerships with local governments and health authorities across the province.
We have adopted and adapted the Healthy Communities Approach in our work to support local governments as they create equitable policies that address community health and well-being. The Healthy Communities movement recognizes that 60% of what makes us healthy is determined by our built, social, environmental and economic environments, and helps local governments design these various environments to support maximum health and well-being.
Our largest program is PlanH, a collaboration between BC Healthy Communities and the Ministry of Health.
PlanH facilitates local government learning, partnership development and planning for healthier communities where we live, learn, work, and play.
Working together with health authorities, UBCM, and the Ministry of Health, PlanH supports the Province’s health promotion strategy.
