Health in Common got a Makeover!

Well, our website did and we’re so excited to share it with you!

Here’s why we decided our website needed to be redesigned…
  1. It’s been a while; the last time our website was redesigned was in 2013.
  2. We wanted our information to be clear, and on just a few pages.
  3. Our old website wasn’t mobile friendly.
  4. We wanted the most popular information up front.
Check it out for yourself – and happy surfing!

Imagine Canada Accredited

Health in Common has been accredited under Imagine Canada’s national Standards Program.

The Standards Program is a Canada-wide set of shared standards for charities and nonprofits designed to strengthen practices in five fundamental areas: board governance; financial accountability and transparency; fundraising; staff management; and volunteer involvement.
