By-law Development Webinar Series

The Health promotion Capacity Building team at Public Health Ontario is proud to present this unique professional development opportunity starting December 2013. These webinars will include brief lectures, case studies, a guest speaker from an Ontario health unit and opportunities to ask questions. Some topics within this series are offered more than once. 
 
The development of healthy public policy is emphasized in the Core Competencies for Public Health and the Ontario Public Health Standards. This webinar series focuses on the development of municipal by-laws. By-laws are designed to meet the needs of, and solve problems faced by citizens. They are typically developed when there is no relevant federal or provincial legislation in place or when the municipality wants to strengthen existing legislation.
 
Health promotion and public health practitioners have a role to play in engaging municipal decision-makers to create by-laws that promote health. Examples include zoning by-laws to guide land use patterns that encourage active transportation and encourage harm reduction efforts (e.g., needle exchange sites) and site control by-laws that ensure the development of safe, open public spaces. 
 
The overarching aim of this series is to demonstrate how by-law development is a health promotion strategy, and to describe a step-by-step model for by-law development.
