Ask questions. Take action.

It is startling to know that there are real differences in health across our communities. It can motivate you to ask questions such as, “Are these differences acceptable?”, “Why do they exist?” and “What can I do to make a difference?”

The more we talk about these differences, the more we can figure out our role in creating change.

Ask questions

In addition to your own questions, we have provided sample questions that you may consider asking decision makers in your community. You can also find some ideas on how you can take action to create change.

Poverty

Housing and physical environments

Environment

Funding and Support

Mental Health

In addition to asking questions, there are other ways to create change.

Vote!

It is critical that everyone who can vote, votes. Do you have friends or neighbours who may need help voting? Helping those around you to register and vote will encourage community participation on key political issues that matter in your community.
