The City of Prince George continues to plan for a healthy community. There is a strong relationship between people, place and health.
The PlanH program supports local government engagement and partnerships across sectors for creating healthier communities. Recognizing that community policy, plans, and decisions affect health and well-being, PlanH provides learning opportunities, resources, and leading-edge practices for collaborative local action.
PlanH addresses three critical and interconnected themes that are required for a healthy community
Local conditions support healthy behaviours and choices where people live, work, learn, and play.
Vibrant places and spaces cultivate belonging, inclusion, connectedness and engagement.
Well-planned built environments and sustainable natural environments support all citizens to thrive, now and in the future
Supporting healthy people by building healthy communities is not new. What perhaps is changing is a recognition that health is everyone's business.
PlanH is a partnership between BC Healthy Communities Society and Healthy Families BC, and is informed by health authorities and other key stakeholders.
