Planning Healthy Communities Fact Sheets

Date: 2012

After reviewing nearly 100 peer-reviewed articles and 16 reports from respected Canadian agencies published between 2007 and 2011, EcoPlan developed a series of fact sheets highlighting findings from the Canadian context relating community design and health.  Covering such themes as active transportation, children & youth, and equity, the purpose of the fact sheets is to better equip Canadian planning practitioners, local government officials, and community leaders to work more closely with researchers and public health officials in charting next steps in research and evidence-informed policy making.
