Description / Summary
Community-led action at the neighbourhood scale has proved vital to addressing complex health inequities during the COVID-19 pandemic in Canada. This report, commissioned by the Office of the Chief Public Health Officer (CPHO) at the Public Health Agency of Canada to inform the 2021 annual CPHO report, sets out four key actions by which public health in Canada can more fully incorporate and support the capacity of communities to take more control over the conditions for their own health and wellbeing.
The National Collaborating Centres for Public Health, in partnership with the authors and the Office of the CPHO are publishing this report to allow broader dissemination of these findings.
