BC Community Health profiles
Community Health Profiles provide local data for use by health authorities
and local governments to support collaborative community health planning. They
offer an introduction to community health data and present this data at the
lowest geographic level available (census sub-division or local health area

health area profiles that are developed by Interior Health.
