Healthy Built Environment Alliance

The Healthy Built Environment Alliance (HBEA) is a voluntary alliance of organizations from a wide variety of sectors across BC which provides leadership and action for healthier, more livable communities. The purpose of HBEA is to:


  1. Bring together the public health professions and the design professions to better understand the health impacts of the built environment.
  2. Ensure this understanding is transmitted to the design professions, the health professions, the development industry, policy makers at all levels of government, and the public who live in the environments created or regulated by the private and public sectors.


Support creation of healthier built environments and evaluation of the health, social, environmental and economic impacts of built environments.
