Download the Pathway to Healthy Communities in the Thunder Bay District report
This report will assist people across the Thunder Bay District who are working together for community change. The community consultations and planning behind the recommendations were made possible through funds from the Healthy Communities Fund, Ministry of Health Promotion and Sport. These recommendations will also be used to align the Ministry's Healthy Communities grants with local priorities.
A steering committee was formed to guide the planning process. Nine-hundred and fourty-seven community members from across the District participated in 24 focus groups and an email survey. They were asked a number of questions, including, "what should we do to create a healthy community?" The responses were grouped into common themes and combined with information collected from recent youth consultations and other local reports.
Hopes, dreams and conditions of well-being emerged from the consultations. These are captured under broad statements called "Results." Each result has indicators that can be monitored for progress. While the recommendations are more specific than the results, they are still meant to be broad in scope. They are intended to provide direction for community leaders interested in developing more specific initiatives.
