Community Wellbeing

Posted on March 03, 2016

Our communities – where we work, live, and play – matter to our health and wellbeing. When different sectors act together on complex problems, this creates healthier communities. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GOAL OF INITIATIVE:

• To create interactive web tools to support action across sectors to improve the wellbeing of Canada’s communities including children, families and Indigenous peoples.

DELIVERABLES :

• An interactive web tool to assist different sectors to assess their readiness for intersectoral action.
• Descriptions of ways that different sectors have worked successfully with others to strengthen families and communities.

These online tools and resources will help different sectors to be better prepared to design and implement intersectoral action to build and improve their communities.
