Formed in February 2003, the BC Alliance for Healthy Living Society (BCAHL) is a group of organizations that came together with a mission to improve the health of British Columbians. Through leadership and collaborative action, BCAHL advances health promoting policies, programs and environments that support the physical and mental well-being of British Columbians.
On June 1, 2017, the alliance was incorporated as a society and the name changed to the BC Alliance for Healthy Living Society. Collectively, BCAHL members capture the attention of over 40,000 volunteers, 4,300 health and recreation professionals and 184 local governments across British Columbia.
As an advocacy group, BCAHLS works with government and holds them accountable to promote wellness and prevent chronic disease.
