Host a "Healthy Change" Workshop

You can get involved with the "Healthy Change with Chronic Conditions" workshop by hosting the six-week workshop at your organization or community centre. Your community will benefit greatly from this effective self-management initiative.

The workshop is funded by the North West Local Health Integrated Network (NW LHIN) so there is no cost to participants. It is part of the provincial strategy to prevent and manage chronic diseases. Since its launch in March 2008, over 74 "Healthy Change" workshops were held in Ontario's North West Region, with over 575 people participating.

We will supply all workshop materials, help to promote the workshop and help with taking registration if necessary. We have trained Leaders in many communities who can facilitate the workshop. Or, staff or volunteers from your organization can train as Leaders to deliver the workshop at your centre.

Hosting a workshop requires:

  • Free space that is accessible and accommodates up to 20 people 
  • Tables, chairs and flip chart stands
  • Convenient parking, nearby transit is helpful
  • Community spirit!
