The Pan-Canadian Network for Health Promoter Competencies has been undergoing a 3-year project, funded by a contribution agreement with the Public Health Agency of Canada, to conduct consultations in provinces across Canada to develop a set of discipline-specific competencies for Canadian health promoters.
We are pleased to share with you that Version 5 is available on the website. This version is a result of consultations conducted in Ontario, Manitoba and Nova Scotia. We will be conducting additional consultation in Alberta and British Columbia in Winter 2015. If you are a Health Promoter in Alberta or BC, stay tuned to our website for event information or you may contact our Project Consultant (Dr. Brent Moloughney firstname.lastname@example.org) if you wish to be a part of the consultation.
Also stay tuned for a comprehensive Health Promoter Toolkit to be released in 2015 to support implementation of Health Promoter Competencies in public health, community health, and academic settings across Canada.
