The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented public health emergency. Public health experts across Canada and our leaders at the BC Centre for Disease Control have taken swift action to protect our population and prevent the spread of the virus. Here’s some of the most relevant information and resources to understand the issues, and protect yourself and your loved ones.RESOURCES
Toxic Drug Poisoning Crisis
BC is in a public health emergency—the toxic drug poisoning crisis. We’ve developed resources about the crisis, stigma, and overdose response and harm reduction. Learn more about how you can support people who use drugs and make a positive difference.RESOURCES
Decoding Public Health
Public health is a very broad and diverse field, dealing with the health of the population as a whole. There are many aspects to public health – but essentially public health is about and for all of us. We are breaking down different concepts in order to ‘decode public health’ so everyone can get involved. Learn more about public health and why supporting our initiatives can help to improve the health of our population.RESOURCES
Activate Health is our battle cry for British Columbians—a call for you to be a health ambassador in your community. From stopping the spread of misinformation, to promoting gender equality, and eliminating stigma, learn about how your individual actions can make a positive difference for the health of our population.RESOURCES
Get in Touch
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.
