Ontario's Health Promotion Resource System (OHPRS) was funded from 2000-2009 to support health promotion in Ontario by building the capacity of individuals and organizations to plan and deliver health promotion programs. The System was comprised of health promotion resource programs / organizations that provided a range of services including:

  • training,
  • consultation,
  • print and electronic resources,
  • network building opportunities, and
  • referrals.

Members of the (former) OHPRS will continue to provide their ongoing services and support their clients, and will coordinate their services and share information with each other.

In May 2009, the Ministry of Health Promotion (MHP) launched its new Healthy Communities Ontario approach. As a part of this new design, the MHP brought together a consortium of several health promotion resource centres to provide support to those working within the new Healthy Communities Ontario approach. The Healthy Communities Consortium consists of four organizations:

  • Health Nexus
  • Ontario Public Health Association
  • Ontario Healthy Communities Coalition
  • and the Parent Action on Drugs

The Consortium will provide the gateway to a comprehensive mix of supports such as training, consultation, print and electronic resources, network building strategies and referrals for local Healthy Communities Partnerships and Healthy Community Fund grant applicants and grant holders. To accomplish this, the Consortium will draw upon and engage the products, services, and resources of all members of the (former) OHPRS.

The OHPRS was funded by the Ministry of Health Promotion (MHP).
