HC Link

PAD was a member of HC Link, a collaborative of three partner organizations that supported community organizations and partnerships in Ontario to build healthy communities. The other two partner organizations were Health Nexus and Ontario Healthy Communities Coalition (OHCC). HC Link was formed in 2009 to form a consortium of resource centres because of our history, expertise and years of experience in supporting community-based partnerships, collations and networks. Together we have decades of experience in providing a wide range of capacity building services to those working on community-based health promotion programs and initiatives. We had a proven track record in providing services that are not only responsive to client needs but also anticipated emerging trends and issues in the field.

A message of farewell … March 28, 2018

Since 2009, Health Nexus, Ontario Healthy Communities Coalition (OHCC) and Parent Action on Drugs (PAD) have collaborated as HC Link, providing consulting services, resources and learning and networking events, in English and French. Our services have supported groups, organizations and partnerships across Ontario to build, strengthen and sustain healthy, vibrant communities.  

After nearly a decade of working with people to develop their confidence, skills and connections, our time has come to an end. HC Link’s funding and operations end effective March 31, 2018.  Endings are a time for reflection. To mark HC Link’s closing, we look back and celebrate our contribution to healthy communities in Ontario in our final publication – Celebrating the Power of Communities.

We are honoured by the strong relationships we have built with our many partners, stakeholders and clients in communities throughout Ontario, and proud of the great work we have accomplished together. We wish you continued success in taking action on the issues affecting the health and wellbeing of your communities.
Warm regards from,
All of us at HC Link
