Our Commitment

Supporting pandemic recovery, strengthening public health, and building resilient communities for us all

We Envision a Healthier, Safer, and More Equitable Future for All.

Who We Are

We are a public health charity, and independent non-governmental organization, supporting and implementing evidence-based and equity-driven research, practice, and policy initiatives that have an immediate impact on the health of people in British Columbia.

What We Do

We bring together philanthropy, funding, partnerships, engagement, and advocacy to advance programs and projects grounded in BC’s public health priorities and most pressing public health needs. We work in partnership with, but distinct from, the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC), as well as the broader public health sector and communities in BC, to improve population health.

Message from Our Executive Director

“The last few years have proven how important it is to invest in public health. Historically underfunded and underrepresented, it is our responsibility to address gaps in public health, to help create a proactive, preventative, and well-funded approach for the safety and wellbeing of our communities. We make a positive impact by supporting and implementing initiatives that reduce harms, address threats, promote health, and drive innovation to address inequities and improve population health for all in BC. We put the healthy human at the centre of all we do because we believe in a future where everyone has access to fair opportunities to achieve good health outcomes. I thank you for your interest in what we do, and I hope you will join us in aspiring to our vision of a healthier, safer, and more equitable future for all.”

Our Public Health Champions

We are grateful for the generosity of our donors and partners, our Public Health Champions. Thank you!

We acknowledge and show gratitude that we are able to work, live, and play on the traditional and unceded lands of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lo and SəÌílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations, and that our work humbly extends to all First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people across what we call British Columbia. We make our commitment to continue on our path of learning and reconciliation and where welcomed to do so, to work with communities to support undoing inequities that have harmed and continue to harm Indigenous people across the stolen and colonized lands of Turtle Island, or what we now call Canada.
