The Alberta Policy Coalition for Chronic Disease Prevention (APCCP) was funded in 2009 by the Alberta Cancer Prevention Legacy Fund (Alberta Health Services) and represents a broad range of practitioners, policy-makers, researchers and community organizations who have come together to coordinate efforts, generate evidence, and advocate for policy change in order to reduce theincidence of chronic diseases in Alberta.

The Healthy Alberta Communities project, affiliated with the Centre for Health Promotion Studies at the University of Alberta, is a community driven initiative aimed to reduce risk factors for development of chronic diseases. The goal of the project is to make healthy choices easy in the day-to-day lives of people living in the four communities selected by Alberta Health and Wellness: Bonnyville, St. Paul, Norwood/North Central Edmonton, and Medicine Hat.

The POWER New Emerging Team was co-funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research’s Institute of Nutrition, Metabolism and Diabetes and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada from 2003-2008. The goal of the POWER NET was to advance understanding of the complex interconnections among the socio-environmental determinants of obesity to inform development of theory-driven multi-level interventions for the promotion of healthy weights.
