The Vibrant Communities Symposium
What makes a vibrant community? The NCCHPP co-organized a full day workshop on Health Impact Assessment at the pre-symposium, held in Winnipeg in March, 2010.

The Vibrant Communities Symposium was held from March 9 to 11, 2010, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. This event was organized by Health in Common, funded by Manitoba Health and Healthy Living. The goal was to share the social, economic, environmental and cultural perspectives of what makes a ?Vibrant Community? in order to develop a Vibrant Communities Charter while building a common vision for the future.

Health in Common asked the NCCHPP to help organize a pre-symposium on the theme of Health Impact Assessment, a promising tool to foster healthy public policy at the local level. Featuring presentations by actors who participated in HIA initiatives in Quebec's Montérégie region and in Nova Scotia (PATH-People assessing their health), the event aimed to present a general introduction to health impact assessment. To open the day's workshop, the NCCHPP presented the theoretical background of HIA, using the slides available below as part of that presentation.
