Population/local health area profiles

The Population Health Profiles provide a picture of health for residents of the Interior Health region. They are divided by Health Authority, Health Service Delivery Area (HSDA), and Local Health Area (LHA) presenting information pertaining to:

  • Demography
  • Health System Performance
  • Home & Community Care
  • Health Behaviour

The data comes from a variety of sources including the BC Vital Statistics Agency, the BC Ministry of Health's Health Data Warehouse, BC Stats, Statistics Canada, and the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI).

The individual profiles are available in the list below.

BC Community Health profiles

The BC Community Health Profiles provide local data for use by health authorities and local governments to support collaborative community health planning. They offer an introduction to community health data and present this data at the lowest geographic level available (census sub-division or local health area level, whenever possible), but are not meant to replace the comprehensive local health area profiles that are developed by Interior Health.


As a step towards reconciliation, Interior Health acknowledges the land that we live, work, and play on as the traditional territories of the Dakelh Dene, Ktunaxa, Nlaka’pamux, Secwepemc, St’at’imc, Syilx and Tsilhqot’in peoples. It is with humility that we continue to strengthen our relationships with the First Nation, Métis, and Inuit peoples of the interior.
