Healthy Communities Partnership

Healthy Communities Partnership

The Grey Bruce Healthy Communities Partnership includes community leaders and decision makers from all communities within Grey Bruce and a variety of sectors with a common agenda to create healthy and safe communities for all.

The Partnership works to enhance Collective Impact to address local health disparities. Collective Impact is a disciplined, cross-sector approach to solving complex issues on a large scale.

The Partnership’s Collective Impact Activities include

  1. Monthly knowledge exchange opportunities to build the capacity of community leaders and organizations to take collaborative action on health and community safety priorities.  Strategies could include educational sessions, guest speakers and presentations and the sharing of sector-specific best practices, policies and research.
  2. Conferences on two and four year intervals regarding topics based on agreed upon needs.  The two year conferences are typically a session and the four year conferences are larger with an evening and full day component.
  3. Continue to educate ourselves on our relationship and shared histories with Indigenous people, committing to the Call(s) to Action set out by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission: #19 to establish measurable goals to identify and close the gaps in health outcomes between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous communities, and to publish annual progress reports and assess long term trends.  To support an Indigenous working group that will collaborate with the Indigenous Health Council.
  4. Participate in/support the development of a Healthy Communities Partnership shared measurement system by utilizing the Bruce Grey Data and Information Sharing Collaborative (BGDISC) platform.
  5. To support the development of the Grey Bruce Community Safety and Well-Being Planning process.
