THE TABLE OF PARTNERS

The MWHN table of partners is comprised of members from local government, First Nations Bands, various public and non-profit service organizations, and other interested community members in the Mount Waddington area. 

 

Island Health

 

We played an instrumental role in the implementation of public transit services in the region. 

 

Mount Waddington Transit began service July 2, 2008, with a generous grant from Island Health. As of April 1, 2010, BC Transit began cost-sharing in the system in partnership with the Regional District of Mount Waddington.

 

North Island Community Services Society operates the buses and the Transit Office. (RDMW.BC.CA)

PARTNER BIOS & LINKS

District of

Port Hardy

Established in 2009, the seniors-elders group representatives meet monthly to listen to issues and take action for the betterment of seniors health. 

We have partnered with Seniors Community Response Network to help prevent elder abuse, and have provided two seniors services guides and programs through funding from the Federal New Horizons programs. Without local advocacy, opportunities to support seniors and elders healthy leaving can not be realized.

Town of

Port McNeill

 

The Mount Waddington Youth Advisory Council was in operation for five years, leading three youth conferences and a variety of activities supported by local agencies. 

Youth housing was identified as the most important area of need at this time, and we helped facilitate research that provided information for Emergency Youth Housing. The Youth Council and Youth Housing projects are currently on hold, but remain a part of the MWHN portfolio. 

'Namgis Nation & Village of Alert Bay

 

With leadership from Island Health, a community committee was formed between 2009 and 2012 that, in partnership, developed an additions plan for the RDMW. Many of the recommendations of this committee have been implemented, exemplifying the MWHN drive towards actionable solutions for health community living. 

Some of the better known results of MWHN involvement with addictions planning are the Cold Weather Shelter and advocacy for better services for complex mental and substance affected people, provided by Island Health.
