The Community Wellness Initiative is about encouraging individuals and families to be and stay healthy. Healthy Lifestyles are kept by promoting physical activity, healthy eating, and positive relationships within families, and time on the land.

The Department of Health and Social Services supports Community Wellness Initiatives in NWT communities with federal funding. Community Development and Wellness Planners are the main point of contact in the GNWT for Wellness Program funding and support. They are also available to support communities to develop and implement Community Wellness Plans and achieve wellness goals.
