Supporting BC Communities with Health Data

Local-level health data highlights community strengths and areas for improvement, and is important for planning policies and programs that are responsive to a community’s needs.


Currently, two types of community health profiles are made available:

  1. Municipality Health Profiles
  2. Community Health Service Area (CHSA) Health Profiles (Version 1.0)

Click on the tools below to start exploring the health profile for communities of your interest and other communities across British Columbia.

Municipality Health Profiles

The BC Community Health Profiles for municipalities, explore a set of community health data for 142 incorporated municipalities on health and factors that affect health. Data is compiled from multiple sources with information presented in charts, graphs, and tables. Download PDF profiles or data in a CSV (Excel) file.

CHSA Health Profiles (Version 1.0)

The Community Health Service Area (CHSA) Profiles (Version 1.0) explore the community’s demographics, socio-economic and health/disease status characteristics for 195 CHSAs in BC (excluding CHSAs that are identifiable as First Nations). Data is compiled from multiple sources with information presented in charts, graphs, and tables. Download PDF profiles or data in a CSV (Excel) file.

Health Database

With Search the Database, search health topics of interest for your community or region by topic or by location. Download customized data tables in a CSV (Excel) file.

Health Atlas

Use the Community Health Atlas mapping tool to display indicators of population health by geographic area. Search by topic to visualize and compare one indicator across BC. Download a PDF map or data table in a CSV (Excel) file.

Some of the indicators presented in the Municipality Health Profiles, the Health Database and the Health Atlas are provided with data available at the level of Local Health Areas (LHAs). Please note that some of the LHAs have been given new names in the process of aligning them with newly created Community Health Service Area (CHSA) geographies. To view the new names, click here.
