dc.description.abstractThrough the CHCP office located in CIP's national office, CIP played a significant leadership role in reaching out to Canadian communities, provinces and organizations, stimulating debate about, and offering support for, communities that are healthy in cultural, ecological, economic, physical and social terms. While the seeds of healthy communities were sown across Canada, they did not take root as expected, but have become localized in a few jurisdictions, such as Quebec, where broader concerns about social justice and environmental health remain on the political agenda. Lessons for CIP and others indicate the need for a sharper focus on political partnerships at the grassroots, local, regional, provincial and federal levels, and a willingness to commit energies and resources to stimulate debate and articulate bold visions for the twenty-first century.en
dc.description.abstractGrâce au Projet canadien des communautés en santé dont les bureaux sont situés dans ceux de l'ICU, l'lnstitut joue un rôle important auprès des communautés canadiennes, des provinces et des organismes, en encourageant le dialogue et en promulguant les communautés saines aux plans culturel, écologique, économique, physique et social. Le concept des communautés en santé a été dissémine partout au pays mais n'a pris racine que dans certaines régions comme le Québec où des préoccupations de justice sociale et de salubrité de l'environnement font partie intégrante des politiques. L'ICU devra développer des partenariats politiques aux niveaux local, régional, provincial et fédéral. Il devra aussi consacrer plus d'efforts et de moyens à encourager le débat et à offrir des solutions hors du commun pour le XXIe siècle.fr
