In collaboration with the NCLGA 2016 Convention, BC Healthy Communities Society, the PlanH program and Northern Health are pleased to invite you to be part of a Healthy Communities Forum. 

The Forum will bring together local governments, the health sector and other community partners working towards healthier communities in the northern region. The event will be an exciting opportunity to take stock of our collective journey and to identify key steps for moving forward.

This pre-convention forum will highlight the successes to date of healthy community partnerships throughout the northern region, providing inspirational stories and practical tools for addressing key health and well-being challenges together. Join us to:

HEAR the stories behind the successes in collaborating across sectors for healthier communities.
LEARN about effective plans, policies, and initiatives that are making a difference in communities around the region.
EXPLORE what’s possible when local governments, health authorities and other community partners collaborate for greater impact.
CONNECT with others to get innovative ideas and useful resources for your community.
IDENTIFY critical next steps for healthy community partnerships in the region, including how to move further upstream and innovate for even greater impact.

This forum is open to northern NCLGA local government, First Nations staff, elected officials, and Northern Health staff.
