The Harbour City
The Nanaimo Division of Family Practice partnered with SCOPE in 2016 to bring Live 5-2-1-0 to the city of Nanaimo. Additional local partners have since come on board including Nanaimo Parks, Recreation and Environment, PacificSport, and the Nanaimo Healthy Cities Working Group (a table of fourteen different community partners). The Live 5-2-1-0 message serves as a common agenda for these local stakeholders to plan and implement action in their sector so children are supported in making healthier choices everyday.
