Island Health Local Area Resources

Island Health produces Local Health Area (LHA) profiles for all regions on Vancouver Island that provide information on things like demographics, population health and health service use over time. 

There are two LHA areas in the Strathcona Region:

These profiles are intended to shed light on community health, including social determinants of health – these are things like economic status, early childhood development, education, housing, justice and social support that can contribute to or detract from our health and wellbeing.  Partnerships with communities and across organizations and governments play an essential role in our ability to impact these factors and improve the health and wellbeing of our communities.
