Healthier Communities

In addition to health care, people's health is affected by their individual behaviours, as well as the physical and social environments in which they live. 

Healthy public policy where we work, play, live, learn and are cared for can improve the health of our people and the communities they live in. 

Our leadership, medical health officers, and community health specialists work to support the health promotion activities of the communities across our region. 

To help people and communities improve their health, and address influencing factors, our Healthy Living team works within Fraser Health and with local municipalities and community groups to help vulnerable groups and neighbourhoods improve their healthy living initiatives. The Healthy Living team consists of a variety of health care professionals with expertise in tobacco reduction, healthy eating, food security, physical activity, and more.
