    Our shared vision: is for every school in Canada to be a healthy school community.

    Our call to action: We believe that the physical and social environment in which young people spend a high proportion of every weekday has profound effects on their physical, emotional and mental health.  We believe that by brokering and strengthening collaboration and partnerships we can strengthen school capacity as a healthy setting for growth and development. 

    Our collective impact: focuses on strengthening equitable collaboration and knowledge exchange to support leaders and decision-makers in creating the conditions for K-12 school communities to fully embrace wellbeing.

    Our invitation:  The Alliance invites all organizations and individuals who share the Alliance’s vision to join.
