A healthy community means collaborating and engaging people, groups and organizations to take action
on community priorities. 

When communities take action for change, information from provincial and community surveys complement people’s experiences and perspectives. The more diverse information you can gather about your community, the better you will be able to understand its assets and challenges. This information can be used to support setting priorities, making evidence-informed decisions, and planning and implementing impactful initiatives.

As well, the LGA profile contains information on these risk factors and provides community-based strategies to help individuals and communities take action towards preventing future cases of cancer and other chronic diseases. These LGA profiles were compiled to help local governments, community groups, and health agencies with priority setting, decision making and policy development at a local level.

The profile uses the most up-to-date information presented at the LGA level (whenever possible) so Albertans can understand what is happening with the people, and in the communities around them.

The profiles are grouped by Alberta Health Services Zones and are in PDF format.
