Venue: online
Health Promotion
City: Online
Format: Webinar
​By-law development can be an important health promotion strategy.  In this webinar, we will provide an overview of the eight steps to developing a by-law. The steps include assessing readiness for by-law development, developing by-law options, and building support among decision-makers. As we examine the eight steps we will highlight the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of each step, and bring the most challenging steps to life with examples. To close, we will identify additional resources and describe our training and consultation services. 

Who should attend?

The goal of this webinar is to help health promotion and public health practitioners work toward healthy public policies. We recommend these sessions for anyone seeking definitions, tools, resources and organized approaches to by-law development. Both front line staff and team will find this session useful.
