Community Capacity Building Strategy

youth parade Capacity building engages people to make their community a healthier and more vibrant place. In part, it's about helping local champions gain skills so they have a complete toolbox for improving the community they call home.

Between 2007 and 2010, BCHLA’s Community Capacity Building Strategy (CCBS) worked with over 35 communities across the province.

Many of the projects supported through this initiative continue today because Community Capacity Building strengthens local assets.
