Healthy Living Inventory Maps - 2016

Together with our partners through the Working Together to Achieve Healthier Lifestyles in Yukon and Northwest Territories’ Communities project, we have compiled information on Healthy Eating and Active Living programs (among Other healthy living programs [in Yukon only]) in communities in both territories for the year 2016. These maps will help program coordinators, recreation leaders, NGO's, funders, governments, and the general public, among others, to access information about the healthy initiatives going on in their communities. The purpose of this tool is to facilitate collaboration between organizations and others in order to work together to support healthier lifestyles across the North. The tool was developed to meet an identified need from our partners for a comprehensive and central inventory tool that acts to promotes partnerships, knowledge sharing and program planning and evaluation.  

The information contained in the Inventory is not representative of all the programs in the two territories; there may be programs that are missing and contacts and program information are constantly evolving. The data was collected by survey to communities through various networks. The survey questions were built together with our partners to meet their needs for information and promote utility of the tool. If you notice a program that needs updating, please let us know by emailing molly@aicbr.ca. If you would like to add a new program to the inventory, please do so by filling out the following survey (for Yukon and NWT)! Thank you in advance for helping us build a comprehensive source of information on healthy living initiatives in the territory!
