​Brant Health Atlas

Welcome to the Brant Health Atlas.

The Brant Health Atlas is an interactive tool that provides up-to-date information on the health of Brant residents. The tool allows you to view this information on a map, in tables, or graphs. Information is presented on a variety of health indicators, for multiple years, and by municipality (City of Brantford and County of Brant) and neighbourhood, where possible. Information is also provided for comparator populations, such as Ontario and the region (Hamilton-Niagara-Haldimand-Brant Local Health Integration Network) where available. Health indicators are aligned with the Core Indicators developed by the Association of Public Health Epidemiologists in Ontario (APHEO). See the User Guide or the Video to learn how to navigate the Brant Health Atlas.
