OHCC produces a number of educational publications to assist community groups and coalitions in their efforts to improve the well-being of their communities. Many of our resources have been updated recently, reflecting changes in conditions and trends within Ontario and, in some respects, nationally and globally.

Some of our resource materials are provided free of charge, and for others we charge only a nominal fee to help recover our printing costs. Most of the resources are available on-line, free of charge.


Manuals and Toolkits: Available online and in print

To order our publications in print format please contact us.
