Designing Healthy Living is the Chief Public Health Officer of Canada's Report on the State of Public Health in Canada.

What makes this tool valuable?

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.
