Its practices and materials are widely used in Public Health Ontario’s health promotion capacity-building services and resources by:
- providing training and support in health communication, health promotion planning, evaluation and policy change
- providing provincial and regional workshops, webinars and tailored consultations
- hosting a number of resource materials available through an online library
- working in collaboration with the Healthy Communities Consortium to provide capacity building services
Workshops and events

During a transition period, THCU resources will continue to be hosted on this site using the searchable Information and Resources database.
