Hosting a workshop requires

  • Free space that is accessible and accommodates up to 20 people 
  • Tables, chairs and flip chart stands
  • Convenient parking, nearby transit is helpful
  • Community spirit!

The workshops are funded by the Ministry of Health so there is no cost to participants. It is part of the provincial strategy to prevent and manage chronic diseases.

We will supply all workshop materials, help to promote the workshop and help with taking registration if necessary. We have trained leaders in many communities who can facilitate the workshops. Or staff or volunteers from your organization can train as leaders to deliver the workshop at your centre.
