Gather evidence: public health and community design.
Designing Healthy Living is the Chief Public Health Officer of Canada's Report on the State of Public Health in Canada.
This report opens with Dr. Theresa Tam's statement: "Without being aware of it, our neighbourhoods and how they are built influence how healthy we are"--a statement that resonates deeply with the work we do at Active Neighbourhoods Canada.
Dr. Tam's report goes on to explain, in detail, the links between the built environment and health, and how to design healthier communities.
This report is produced by the Public Health Agency of Canada. The report is hosted on the Government of Canada website.
