Healthy Built Environment Forum

To foster pan-Canadian networking and shared learning, the NCCEH has collaborated with the BC Centre for Disease Control to develop a “Healthy Built Environment (HBE) in Canada” online discussion forum. Champions from each province and territory are needed to assist with the development of this forum. Champions may represent any profession that has a role in supporting healthy built environment (i.e. research, community and land use planning, local government, public health, non-profit). Forum champions will help to keep the forum lively and engaging by promoting within their province or territory, leading discussions, identifying emerging issues and presenters, and sharing resources.

If you are interested in becoming a Champion or would like to learn more about the Forum, please click on the button below.
