Healthy Living Inventory Maps
Community Inventory Questions
In 2014 and 2016, the Arctic Institute of Community-Based Research did an inventory of healthy eating and active living programs in the NWT and Yukon. This was part of a project called Working Together To Achieve Healthier Lifestyles in Yukon and Northwest Territories’ Communities. We greatly appreciated all those who helped gather and share program information and have created two webmaps out of the data, now posted on our website as an online mapping tool (www.aicbr.ca/healthy-living-inventory/).
We hope that you have found the inventory helpful as a tool to see what is happening in NWT and Yukon communities.
As is the nature with inventories, it is a snapshot in time, and the information in these maps is not exclusive, we understand there may be programs that are missing. If you have a new program you would like to add to the Inventory, please fill out the survey below! If you have updated information on an exiting program already in the inventory, please email us directly!
We invite you to help us build an evolving and comprehensive picture of the healthy living programs in the two territories in order to strengthen the tool. This tool is useful for sharing information about programs, creating and strengthening [new and existing] networks, and showcasing successes or identifying gaps in programming. This helps programs and communities with planning for healthier communities and to avoid duplication in others.
Steps to do the survey:
- List your active living or healthy eating program.
- Answer the 11 questions about the program. The programs and activities collected for the inventory may be ongoing or current single-year initiatives.
- Please enter all programs you are aware of.
- Provide a contact person and contact information.
If you have more than one program to share information about, please fill out the information for each program.
If there are photos or video clips that you would also like to include on the online map, please email them directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
