Webinar Description

Since the early 2000s, the ideas of preventive and collective actions in terms of healthy eating, physically active lifestyles and the prevention of weight-related problems have gained momentum in Quebec. A wide-ranging mobilization of actors from various sectors was launched in 2012 throughout the province of Quebec.

The First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Health and Social Services Commission is participating in this initiative by offering awareness-raising sessions on environments conducive to healthy lifestyle habits for decision-makers in Quebec First Nation communities.

This approach aims to present a vision of environments conducive to healthy eating, a physically active lifestyle and the prevention of weight-related problems; and to orient the work of stakeholders from different backgrounds (municipal, school, health, community, political, economic, etc.).

The objectives of the webinar are the following:
  1. Inform participants about the province-wide First Nations approach to healthy lifestyle awareness sessions;
  2. Better understand the effect of physical, socio-cultural, economic and political environments on our lifestyles;
  3. Present some examples of how to act to create environments conducive to healthy lifestyle habits: to make healthy choices easier and less healthy choices more difficult for members of First Nation communities.
