About Us

Any time of the day or night, every day of the year HealthLink BC provides access to non-emergency health information and advice in British Columbia. Information and advice is available by telephone, a website, a mobile app, and a collection of print resources, including the BC HealthGuide Handbook.

Not only is our website available any time of the day or night, every day of the year, it can be accessed from many different types of devices. Our website will automatically reformat to fit the size of whatever screen you are using. You can access health information from your smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer.

Through our programs and services, you can get the information you need to make healthy decisions for yourself and those you care for, wherever and whenever you want it.

HealthLink BC brought together some of British Columbia's most trusted and recognized health information services including: the BC HealthGuide, BC HealthFiles, BC NurseLine, Pharmacist Services, Dial-a-Dietitian, and the Physical Activity Line (PAL) - and expanded these with an online and by-phone navigation service to help you find the health resources and facilities you need, closest to where you live.

Our integrated group of services continues our history of trusted, high-quality health care.
