Healthy communities, equity and economic recovery
BC Healthy Communities & SFU Community Economic Development Program
February 2nd 2021
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM PST
CPL Units: 1.5

For communities across Canada, 2020 was an especially trying year. However, the difficulties we are all facing continue to impact community members to varying degrees. Though inequities existed in our communities prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, current challenges have amplified these differences. Given all we have learned through our past and present experiences, how can we put equity into action to create greater well-being for all community members?
Join BC Healthy Communities and Simon Fraser University’s Community Economic Development team as we explore the intersections of health, well-being and community economic development. Come prepared to break off into small groups and discuss your experiences, ideas and opportunities for a more just recovery.

Intended for community planners and decision makers, this session will provide information about the value of equity in supporting healthy processes and policies, and offer guidance on applying equity in community economic development processes. This webinar will prime participants with a wide range of concepts and ideas for creating healthier, more inclusive communities. The session will complement PlanH’s newest Action Guide: Supporting equity in planning and policy, by providing a closer look at the links between economic development and recovery, equity and overall community well-being.

Please note - registration spaces are limited to support breakout room discussions. The webinar will be recorded and available online afterwards. If you would prefer not to take part in the discussion, we ask that you please sign up for BCHC's PlanH newsletter to be notified when the recording is available.
