BC Community Health Profiles

User-friendly profiles are available for 142 incorporated municipalities across British Columbia. Each profile features local data on demographics, factors that affect health, available health services, and health status and chronic disease.

BC Community Health Profiles available for the communities in the Vancouver Coastal Health region, listed above, are intended to complement the My Health My Community (MHMC) Profiles and Atlas. MHMC is a partnership between VCH, FH and the University of British Columbia (UBC) Faculty of Medicine’s eHealth Strategy Office. Local governments, community groups, health authorities and any others can use the information at the community and neighbourhood levels to ensure that planning and service delivery is relevant to resident needs.

To access the archived 2014 Community Health Profiles, please visit the Community Health Data section of the Population & Public Health website.

Acknowledgements

BC Community Health Profiles were developed by the Provincial Health Services Authority in support of Healthy Families BC in partnership with the Ministry of Health, regional health authorities, the Union of BC Municipalities, and PlanH. These profiles will help inform local government and community organizations on the health and well-being of their communities. Healthy Families BC is the Ministry’s primary prevention strategy and recognizes the importance of local interests in supporting the creation of environments that promote healthy living.
