The specific goals of the framework are to:

  • Create a culture of health and well-being
  • Build healthy communities through coordinated action

  • Enhance the capacity of community leaders to work together on health living.

The Healthy Communities Fund specifies six priority areas:

  1. Physical Activity, Sport and Recreation
  2. Healthy Eating
  3. Tobacco Use/Exposure
  4. Injury Prevention
  5. Substance and Alcohol Misuse
