The Child & Youth Health Network supports the communities of southern Vancouver Island and the south Gulf Islands. We live, work and play on the traditional territories of the Lkwungen (Esquimalt and Songhees), Malahat, Pacheedaht, Scia’new, T’Sou-ke and W̱SÁNEĆ, (Pauquachin, Tsartlip, Tsawout, Tseycum) peoples.

Formed in 2014, the Child and Youth Health Network (C&YHN) came together as a multi-stakeholder collaborative composed of community organizations, municipal and provincial representatives, the Capital Regional District, and Island Health. The C&YHN merged out of extensive discussion and consultations with service delivery organizations, health practitioners, front-line staff working with children and youth, systems leaders, parents, children and youth who voiced the critical need for a comprehensive approach to the health and well-being of children and youth.  Coming together as a large multi-sectoral initiative the Network aims to improve health outcomes for children and youth in the capital regional district of British Columbia. The C&YHN advocates for communities supporting healthy kids, growing into healthy adults, raising healthy kids.

VISION: Communities supporting healthy kids, growing into healthy adults, raising healthy kids.

MISSION: The C&YHN aligns to ensure children and youth in the Capital Region thrive.

GOAL: The goal of the C&YHN is to optimize the health and wellness of children and youth in the following domains: cognitive, physical, emotional, spiritual, cultural, environmental, social, and financial/occupational.
