Supporting BC Communities with Health Data

This site was developed and is maintained by the Population and Public Health Surveillance team (part of Data & Analytic Services) at the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC), a program of the Provincial Health Services Authority in partnership with the regional health authorities and the Ministry of Health in BC.

Local-level health data highlights community strengths and areas for improvement. This data is important for planning policies and programs that respond to a community''s needs.

To support municipal- and community-level health planning, there are two types of community health profiles available:

  1. Municipality Health Profiles
  2. Community Health Service Area (CHSA) Health Profiles (Version 2.0)

Click on the tools below to explore health profiles for your communities of interest and other communities across British Columbia.
