Covering more than 20,000 square kilometres, with a population of barely 11,000, for over 14 years British Columbia’s Mount Waddington Health Network has shown it’s possible for rural folks to come together and tackle a range of daunting health & wellness challenges. This BC Rural Centre webinar shines a light on the Network — an informative hour for anyone concerned with innovative, bottom-up approaches to rural health issues.

Gilakas’la – Welcome
The Mount Waddington Health Network is a positive, community-centric network of health related organizations, people and governments serving the Mount Waddington Region. We collaborate and share ideas and resources for the betterment of health & wellness in our communities.
Working together for healthy communities!
As a network, we perform most of our work (collective action) at the committee level. The people working on committees leverage their knowledge in their relative areas of expertise, make plans at a committee level, and inform the actions of our larger network.
