Brockville – Community agencies and partnerships across Leeds, Grenville and Lanark are talking about health equity.

Health equity means everyone has the chance to have a healthy life and be protected from things we cannot change on our own.  The Basic Income Guarantee pilot, a Living Wage, universal drug benefit coverage, extended parental leave and increased licensed child care spaces are examples of health equity at work.

Let’s ask questions about health equity?

·    What else do people need to be healthy?

·    How can we provide what they need?

·    Where in the community can they access what they need?
What can you do?

*   Share your personal and professional knowledge
*   Be involved in your community
*   Support policy development that promotes health and well-being
*   Reflect on your own choices and actions on the health of our communities
