Community Wellness Plans

Community wellness is a shared vision for healthier communities. It results in a healthier population and greater involvement by communities.

The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) is committed to providing support to NWT communities so that they can improve the wellness and health of their residents. The GNWT reached a new block funding agreement with Health Canada to deliver federally funded community based wellness programs. This new agreement gives communities the ability to enter into multi-year agreements for wellness funding that began in 2014.

The federal funding was used by the communities to develop and implement their own wellness plans.
