What is Wellness?

Wellness is the process of making beneficial choices throughout the lifespan, it is about positive momentum and growth – not just the absence of illness. Wellness is a complex goal that requires the cooperation of physical, mental and social services. It is a goal that can only be achieved by working together. As we look ahead to the future of our community, we are taking the steps required to support the health and vitality of everyone who calls Innisfil home.

The Town of Innisfil prioritizes health and wellness in the community as evidence by the development of the Rizzardo Health and Wellness Centre. Access to healthcare services is an essential piece of the health and wellness puzzle, however there are many pieces that need to fit together to optimize wellness in Innisfil. To further enforce our commitment to health, the Town of Innisfil established Our Heath. This community health and wellness strategy identifies how to improve the modifiable factors affecting health with the specific needs and goals of Innisfil residents in mind. It will help align the great work that is already being done in our community, while seeking new opportunities to integrate health and wellness into all that we do. Health and wellness is everyone’s responsibility, and together we can build a healthy, thriving community.
