Healthy Society

Taylor Bachrach, Mayor of Smithers, speaks to the importance of measuring indicators of success that are meaningful to healthy communities, such as crime rates and air quality.  The Town of Smithers have been working in collaboration with Northern Health to measure these community indicators.  This interview was recorded at the 2015 UBCM Convention.

In this video recorded at the 2015 UBCM Convention, Laurie Dolan of Fort Nelson reflects on an inspirational BCHC workshop she attended that sparked a process of asset mapping and building on successful projects.

Jane’s Walks are walking conversations about neighbourhoods and how people use cities. The walks get people to tell stories about their communities, explore their communities, and connect with neighbours. Anyone can lead a walk because everyone is an expert on the places they live, work and play. In 2015, Jane's Walk took place across 6 continents, 36 countries, 189 cities, and in the form of over 1000 walks. Mayors from throughout Metro Vancouver challenged their constituents to participate in a Jane's Walk.

This Request for Proposal is designed to seek proposals from communities wanting to host the 9th BC Rural Communities Summit in the spring of 2016. The BC Rural Network will work with the successful applicant, providing background, organizational support, some financial support, and assistance with fundraising. Final financial statements from previous Summits will be made available to the host community.  Due to a more challenging funding environment the BCRN is not as able to financially support the host organization as it has in the past.
