We are pleased to share with you the report, Bringing Health to the Planning Table: A Profile of Promising Practices in Canada and Abroad. This report was produced by the Healthy Living Issue Group of the Pan-Canadian Public Health Network.
The report profiles case studies within 13 Canadian communities from across Canada where collaborative approaches to improve health outcomes have been a key consideration in planning decisions related to the built environment. This approach was chosen so that the successes (and lessons learned) of a variety of different projects could be shared with other communities. With one case study from each province and territory it provides a pan-Canadian perspective. Two international examples highlight similar work happening abroad.
Please feel free to disseminate this report broadly. It can be found online at: http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/hl-vs-strat.
We would be interested to hear how the report is supporting your work and the work of your colleagues. Any feedback can be sent to: [email protected].
