2023 BC AHS Community Consultations

McCreary will start hosting community consultations for the 2023 BC AHS this fall and winter. Community consultations are a chance to discuss survey items people would like to see included on the 2023 survey.

This includes the current and emerging health issues people are seeing in their schools and communities. For example, from consultations leading up to the 2018 BC AHS, a number of emerging issues were identified for inclusion on the survey, such as the length of students’ school commute, problem gambling, and experiences of time pressure. We would also like to learn more about how the BC AHS data has been used in your community or how you would like it to be used.

This fall, we will also be hiring Youth Health Ambassadors across BC to host consultations with their peers to gather input on what youth see as the key local health issues in their communities.

Please contact Karen (karen@mcs.bc.ca) for more information, to register for one of the regional consultations, or to schedule an additional consultation.
