Healthy Weights Connection

This is a project in partnership with Western University. The project strives to improve and coordinate existing community resources, and access new resources, to achieve and maintain healthy weights among Aboriginal children and youth. Through awareness, communication, cooperation and collaboration, Healthy Weights Connection partners strive to: 

  • Reduce the risk of obesity among Aboriginal children and youth by improving how local health and wellness organizations serve families;
  • Increase culturally-appropriate programming available for children and their families;  and
  • Improve relationships and collaborations among components of the health and social service systems.
