Housing co-operatives play a vital role during extreme weather events, providing support to vulnerable members. We know that the extreme heat and smoke events in the past few years have been very challenging for many co-ops.
Vancouver Coastal Health and Fraser Health’s Health Protection departments would like to invite you to a webinar on Tuesday, May 2, 2023 from 9:30-11:30am to learn about the health effects of heat and smoke in the region, and to provide some resources and information to help prepare you for the upcoming season.
This session will include presentations by Fraser Health and Vancouver Coastal Health, with additional presenters from BC Housing and MOSAIC sharing learnings and promising practices.
There will be an opportunity for questions with the Medical Health Officer and Health Emergency Management BC. The Q&A portion of the webinar is an opportunity for the health authorities to answer your questions and to better understand how they can support housing co-ops and other non-governmental organizations during extreme heat events.
