The Healthy Canadians and Communities Fund is a funding program of the Public Health Agency of Canada. We aim to prevent chronic disease, including:

  • diabetes
  • cancer
  • cardiovascular disease

These chronic diseases have common behavioural risk factors, including:

  • tobacco use
  • unhealthy eating
  • physical inactivity

We fund interventions in the area of primary prevention. This means projects need to address these risk factors.

Our program encourages all sectors of society to participate in supporting healthy living among people living in Canada.
