Since 2019, Generation Health has been offered in communities across B.C. at local recreation delivery agencies and YMCA facilities. The program is delivered in partnership through the Childhood Healthy Living Foundation, University of Victoria and Province of BC.
The Childhood Healthy Living Foundation was founded in 2004 and was granted charitable status in 2006. Its mission is to lead a societal shift toward healthy eating and active lifestyles to promote the health of Canadian children and youth and the resulting physical and emotional benefits.
Generation Health was developed using an evidence-based approach and has undergone a process and outcome evaluation led by University of Victoria researchers. The purpose of the evaluation was to assess the reach and efficacy of the program, as well as to gain an understanding of the issues involved in implementing and sustaining program delivery across B.C. A summary of the evaluation is available by clicking here.
