PHABC’s Summer School is one of BC’s only continuing education courses for public health. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about the latest issues in public health, build your professional skill-set, network with like-minded individuals and find out how you can help foster safe and inclusive communities!


We are excited to partner with the Saskatchewan Public Health Association and BC Healthy Communities to explore the foundational concepts and applications of building safe and inclusive communities, and what this looks like for public health through a combination of key note sessions, workshops and breakout discussions. Both the physical and the social aspects of safe and inclusive communities will be considered.

For this year’s theme of community safety and inclusion, PHABC would like to hear from you! What does community safety and inclusion look like in your community? Answer the question by sending a photo and a brief description, including the name of your community, to



Following the format of last year’s summer school and fall conference; our chosen theme, integrated with the discussions held by participants at the summer school, will be used to help guide and inform the curriculum of our annual conference. Participants who attend the summer school are encouraged use what they learn to develop an abstract for consideration at the conference, happening from November 15th to 16th, 2018 at the Sutton Place Hotel in Downtown Vancouver.


We are always in need of notetakers for each location. If you are interested in the summer school but the cost of registration is a major obstacle to your attendance, please contact Christina at for current volunteer opportunities.
