BC Community Health Profiles
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.
BC Community Health Profiles were developed by the Provincial Health Services Authority in support of Healthy Communities across BC in partnership with the Ministry of Health, health authorities, BC Observatory for Population and Public Health, 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. The Ministry’s primary prevention strategy recognizes the importance of local interests in supporting the creation of environments that promote healthy living.
