Position Statement

Financing Health Promotion in British Columbia

To finance health promotion in BC, the BC Coalition for Health Promotion (BCCHP) proposes two resolutions:

That the Government of British Columbia support, through legislation, the establishment of an independent, at-arms-length from government, Health Promotion Foundation in British Columbia;

That $1.00 per person per year, the equivalent of $4.077 million in 2003, is dedicated from Medical Services Plan premiums to a Health Promotion Foundation thus generating a sustainable annual provincial contribution towards health promotion activities in British Columbia.1
