​Brant Health Atlas

Welcome to Brant Health Atlas.

The Brant Health Atlas is an interactive tool that provides information on the health of residents in the City of Brantford and the County of Brant. Information is available on socio-demographic characteristics and a variety of key health indicators by age, sex and neighbourhood. Health indicators are aligned with the Core Indicators developed by the Association of Public Health Epidemiologists in Ontario (APHEO). Information is presented for many years, up until the most recent data available. The tool allows you to view this information on a map, in tables, or graphs. See the User Guide to learn how to navigate the Brant Health Atlas.
