Health Promoting Local By-laws
Share |

This area of alPHa's website has been created to help members access and share health promoting local by-laws.  Boards of health use many approaches to improve and maintain the overall level of health experienced by the communities they serve.  

By-laws are one tool that boards of health can use to impact the broader determinants of health (SDOHs), so we've organized the by-laws by the SDOHs that they are most likely to influence.   This list of SDOHs is taken from the Ontario Public Health Standards.

To access the by-law collection associated with each social determinant of health, click on the SDOH below.  You can also search for specific by-laws using the search function in the upper left hand corner of this website.  Each entry clearly states if it is a by-law that is in place or in process.  If you want to add a by-law to share, you must have an alPHa member login ID and password. Proceed to an SDOH to add to the list of entries.
